IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR 2022/23


The MVTA and MVMA have been in discussions, since last year, with regards to registering our members with both associations jointly.  Up until now, this process was done by each organization, individually.

We are proud to announce that we have streamlined the registration and renewal process for our members (members, students and lifetime memberships).  We feel that this will be an easier process for our members and allow our Executive Director more time to work on the Association's actionable items.  This is the same model that has been used in Alberta for the past 10 years.

For the upcoming RVT renewal process (2022/2023):

  • Members will be sent ONE invoice that contains your MVMA and MVTA fees.
  • Members will complete ONE online renewal process through the MVMA.
    • The MVMA will collect and send information to the MVTA.
  • Members will make ONE payment to the MVMA.
    • The MVMA will remit fees directly to the MVTA.

Your membership renewals will be launched mid-April by the MVMA, so please stay tuned.  If you are looking to register as a NEW member in Manitoba, click the links below and it will direct you to the MVMA's website.

Registration in Manitoba

All veterinary technologists must be registered in the Province of Manitoba with both the Manitoba Veterinary Technologists Association and the Manitoba Veterinary Medical Association. The registration year runs from July 1 to June 30th and renewals open mid-April annually.

The MVTA has three categories of membership:

  1. Membership - $140.15
    • Failure to submit required fees by renewal deadline shall result in a late renewal fee of $50 levied against the member in addition to the outstanding fees. Renewal fees paid after June 30 will be charged a reinstatement fee of $100 in addition to the membership fee.
  2. Lifetime Membership – fee waived
  3. Student Membership - $62.00
    • Fees are waived for VT Red River College Polytechnic students


International Technologists

The MVMA has recently passed a by-law that will allow for individuals to become members (an practice veterinary medicine as a Registered Veterinary Technologist in Manitoba) if they have a certificate from the Program for the Assessment of Veterinary Education Equivalence (PAVE®) issued by the American Association of Veterinary State Board (AAVSB).  This certificate program will be coming available to individuals in 2023.


Membership Withdrawal Form

If you are moving or have decided to change career paths, we require you to complete a short survey which will also inform us to withdraw you from the Association. If you require a letter of Good Standing, please contact the MVMA.
