Animal Health Technologists that wish to practice veterinary medicine in the province of Alberta are required by law to have membership in the AAAAHT and be registered with the ABVMA. When an AHT is interested in working in Alberta, they must contact the ABVMA directly and/or go to the ABVMA website to access the registration forms. When an AHT is registered with the ABVMA, they automatically become members in the ABVMA and the AAAHT and must adhere to bylaws and legislation in both organizations.
There are several categories of membership within the ABVMA, please refer to: www.abvma.ca/About-ABVMA/Legislation.asp for more information. Membership process information is also available.
