From today til July 19, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) is hosting the leading international convention for companion animal veterinarians, the 44th World Small Animal Veterinary Association World Congress (WSAVA),
The WSAVA World Congress is bringing together 2,100 veterinarians from 82 countries for a scientific program of the highest standard that will leave a legacy beyond the convention. Delegates will host a clinic for homeless and vulnerably-housed pet owners at the Yonge Street Mission and participate in a run to raise funds to support the fight against rabies in Africa. Following the convention, a two-day workshop will take place with leading expert veterinarians Dr. Sheilah Robertson and Dr. Melinda Merck in collaboration with the Ontario Shelter Medicine Association and the Toronto Humane Society.
The bid to host WSAVA was won back in 2015 by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) in partnership with the MTCC, Tourism Toronto and the Leaders Circle, a noteworthy association of Canadian professionals who are experts in their respective fields.
