Province of Manitoba proclaims October11-17th as Veterinary Technologist Week!

October 14, 2015

MAHTA is proud to announce that Ron Kostyshyn, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development has proclaimed October 11-17, 2015 as Veterinary Technologist Week in Manitoba! The MAHTA Board of Directors reached out to the minster's office in April of 2015, taking advantage of the opening of the Veterinary Medical Act, asking Mr. Kostyshyn to consider proclaiming October 11-17 as Veterinary Technologist Week as it is celebrated throughout Canada and the United States. Earlier this month we received an official proclamation certificate from the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development and we are happy to share it with you, our members and the public! Be proud and celebrate your chosen profession not just the week of October 11-17 but everyday.
