New faces to join CVO Council
November 24, 2016
The College of Veterinarians of Ontario welcomes two new Council members and one returning member next week as a result of the recent election.
Elections were held in three electoral districts this fall and all three candidates were acclaimed. Joining Council are Dr. Tyrrel de Langley, a veterinarian for the University of Western in London; Dr. Paula Menzies, a faculty member at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph; and, serving her second term is Dr. Sarah Thompson, a companion animal veterinarian in Cambridge. The new members join Council at the November meeting.
The College extends its gratitude to those Councillors whose terms are expiring this year – Dr. Carolyn Kerr and Dr. James Vanhie. Their service and contribution has been greatly appreciated and has made a meaningful difference.
The College Council is composed of 13 veterinarians, who are elected by their peers, and five public members, who are appointed by the provincial government.
The College protects and serves the public interest through the regulation of the practice of veterinary medicine. Accordingly, veterinarians are licensed, facilities are accredited, standards and policies are developed and maintained, and an investigations and resolutions process is available. The College licenses approximately 4,500 veterinarians and accredits over 2,300 facilities in Ontario.
