How to become a Vet in Canada
Although it’s difficult to predict exact timelines, we have created a unique process to streamline the process and kickstart your journey to Canada. Depending on your individual situation, we will tailor steps to ensure you’re supported all the way.
Here’s a basic outline of what you can expect when you decide to join VetCare:
Meeting Our Care Team
A virtual meet ‘n greet with our Practice Care Centre team to explore your experience and career goals. We will discuss opportunities within VetCare where you might be a good fit.
Applying for a Work Permit
Once you’ve decided on a city where you’re excited to live, and a VetCare practice location you’d like to join, we’ll start working together with immigration consultation lawyers to apply for your work permit.
While your visa is processing, we provide everything you need to know and do to become certified in your selected province.
