We will foster the development of swine veterinarians and strengthen our profession through education, networking and communication.
Who We Are

The WCASV also provides financial support to the swine production medicine curriculum at WCVM and provides awards to undergraduate and graduate veterinary students who show excellence in swine medicine.
The Association has rotating presidency and a designated secretary treasurer, scientific program chair, and office support. The current membership is 55 veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians involved in swine and food animal production medicine from across western Canada.
