Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan

General Information

The Western College of Veterinary Medicine was established in 1964 and currently enrolls approximately 280 undergraduate and 65 graduate students. Its five departments employ over 200 faculty and staff. The college offers courses leading to the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.)

In its short history the college has quickly gained international stature and credibility in the fields of animal reproduction, gastroenterology, toxicology and wildlife health.


The overall goal of the CANARIE Project is to connect three Canadian veterinary schools: Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC), University of Prince Edward Island, Faculté de médecine vétérinaire (FMV) at St-Hyacinthe, Université de Montréal, Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), University of Guelph, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, and an industry partner, Lifelearn Inc.

The physical distances between colleges and the demand for high quality video makes it difficult to share expertise and consult between colleagues. Advanced broadband Internet technology will facilitate the transmission of materials between colleges, and enhance the quality of the content. This requires purchasing special purpose equipment (such as network video servers), installation, testing, integration and evaluation. This also requires bringing people together with experience in learning technologies, multimedia design, digital imaging and video technology.

Although many other Canadian institutions participate in distributed learning programs, this would be the first instance of several providers collaborating to share professional program training over such great distances.
