Université de Montréal Faculty of Veterinary Medicine
|Type||Public Faculty of Veterinary Medicine|
|Location||Montreal, Quebec, Canada|
The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (French: Faculté de médecine vétérinaire) at Université de Montréal is one of a few veterinary medical schools in Canada. It is the only French-language veterinary college in North America. The faculty is part of the Université de Montréal and is located in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec near Montreal.
The veterinary college was located in Oka, Quebec before moving to Saint-Hyacinthe in 1947. In Oka, the veterinary college formed part of an agricultural-veterinary educational centre operated by the Trappists. This centre was financed by the Quebec Department of Agriculture.
The Centre became the direct responsibility of the Québec Department of Agriculture from 1947-1969. In 1969, the Centre became a Université de Montréal faculty. Considerable development in staff and facilities has taken place.
Since 1972, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine has been home to the Centre de Recherche en Reproduction Animale (CRRA) [Animal Reproduction Research Centre], a facility dedicated to the understanding of reproductive issues in large domestic animals (livestock).
