October 2019 is RVT Month — Let’s Celebrate YOU!

The Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada (RVTTC) is celebrating national RVT Month in October by encouraging registered veterinary technicians and technologists (RVTs) to “Carve your own path – break the mold.”

The Registered Veterinary Technologists and Technicians of Canada (RVTTC) is celebrating national RVT Month in October by encouraging registered veterinary technicians and technologists (RVTs) to “Carve your own path – break the mold.”

“We know RVTs are vital members of the veterinary healthcare team with extensive knowledge and experience,” says RVTTC President, Heather Shannon, RVT. “This year’s theme focuses on the diverse career path each RVT takes to create a culture of longevity and success in veterinary technology.”

RVTs are formally educated in a number of areas within veterinary medicine. From anesthesia to dentistry; lab animal research to industry sales; equine to avian and exotics; nutrition to radiology; large animal to shelter medicine, RVTs bring forward a diverse background to share alongside veterinarians, providing animals with the highest quality of healthcare.

Every October, RVTTC and provincial associations across Canada (BCVTA, ABVTA, SAVT, MVTA, OAVT, EVTA) celebrate and recognize RVTs

To encourage clinics and workplaces across the country to get involved with RVT Month, RVT Month Kits have been created and made available through every provincial association in either physical or electronic form. Each physical kit contains things like posters, sticky notes, window clings, bracelets and dentistry education postcards. Electronic kits contain pdfs of all print materials, as well as computer backgrounds and profile and cover photos for Facebook and Twitter.

Contact your Provincial Association to find out how RVT Month Kits are being delivered in your province. Click HERE to contact your association.

There are a number of initiatives planned throughout the month of October to help promote and recognize the RVT profession. RVTs can look forward to:

  • The weekly events and activities featuring RVTs, such as videos, contests, RVT features, and swag for purchase.
  • Tweets, Facebook frames and new graphics promoting the RVT profession – and featuring hashtags such as #ProudlyRVT, #RVTMonth, #ThankanRVT, and #IamanRVT – are included in the RVT Month Electronic Kit
  • New 2019 RVT Month poster available in English & French – available for YOU in print format in the RVT Month Electronic Kit to tailor your own activities
