Ontario Veterinary College

The Ontario Veterinary College is the oldest veterinary school in Canada and the United States. It began in Toronto in 1862, but later moved to Guelph, Ontario in 1922 and became a founding college of the University of Guelph in 1964. OVC is the only veterinary college in the province of Ontario, and one of only four veterinary colleges across Canada. (The other three are at the Université de Montréal, University of Prince Edward Island, and the University of Saskatchewan.)

OVC offers bachelor's degrees in bio-medical science, but its primary degree offering is the DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine). The College also offers DVSc, PhD, MSc, and Diploma programs at the graduate level.
