NVA Canada was founded by a veterinarian, so when it comes to veterinary medicine—we get it.

We offer medical autonomy to practice your way, along with offering you support to focus on what you do best. That means resources, information, equipment, and whole-person support. NVA Canada prioritizes serving you through servant leadership, and leaning into our values in all that we do.

We’re passionate about offering varying levels of veterinary roles, giving you room to grow and thrive as a DVM. From leadership roles as Managing Veterinarians to Associate roles, Locums and everything in between there are many ways to contribute to and grow with the NVA Canada community.

Join Us. Grow Together.

Whether you are a soon-to-be graduate, a recent graduate,
or a well-practiced Veterinarian, we offer benefits and programs that
are designed to support your journey in veterinary medicine.

Your passion is helping animals. Our passion is helping you.

“I can’t say enough about this amazing program. Self-care is essential to our overall wellbeing. It first started with supporting our animal caregivers however it turned out to be much more. Our journey of self-discovery of learning our “why” is instrumental to our everyday life – in and out of clinics.” -Kerri C
