Founding of The Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians

In April of 1970, a nucleus of Animal Health Technology graduates formed the Canadian Association of animal Health Technicians - (CAAHT).

The Association changed its title in 1977 to the Ontario Association of Animal Health Technicians (OAAHT), and then most recently in 1991 changed its title again to the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians (OAVT).

Since 1970, membership has steadily increased.
