The Co-op job placement is an educational program offered through the local high schools; it gives students the opportunity to work part-time in one of our three clinics. We support the high school’s co-op program by giving students, interested in a becoming a veterinarian or veterinary technician, an opportunity to gain practical experience.

All co-op placement opportunities must be organized by the student guidance counsellor, the guidance counsellor can contact on the students behalf.  

Students are treated with the same respect and expectations as all of our employees. In return, we expect students to display the same sense of responsibility, professionalism and enthusiasm for this job as their co-workers. Students begin by learning how to perform such cleaning duties as laundry, dishes, vacuuming, mopping and washing floors to ensure the hospital is always maintained in an orderly and presentable manner.

Students will also have the opportunity to observe many of the activities in the hospital that they are not yet trained to participate in, giving them a sense of what their future career may be like. If you are a high school student and wish to participate in the co-op program please contact your high school guidance counsellor. We will expect a resume with a cover letter and an interview with the student before accepting the co-op placement.

Volunteer Position

We value our community involvement and recognizes that there are many young people that share the same love of animals that we do. Knowing this, we are pleased to offer volunteer opportunities at the clinic. In return, we expect students to display the same sense of responsibility, professionalism and enthusiasm for this job as their co-workers. 

These opportunities are limited to students studying science in pre-vet programs.

We are an equal opportunity employer. Due to the large volume of resumes we receive, you will only be contacted if you are required to come in to the hospital for an interview. Your application will be kept on file and you will be considered for positions which arises, suitable to your background and qualifications.  Please ensure that if you have any changes to your address, phone number, or qualifications, you resubmit an updated resume
