Join us for the annual Career Fair hosted during the OAVT Conference.
The Career Fair is an opportunity for attendees to learn about different careers and ask potential employers questions about RVT roles in their organizations. Attendees should come prepared with their resume or CV!
The Career Fair is also an opportunity for potential employers to connect with RVTs, learn what their pay and benefit expectations are, and even conduct interviews on-site.
We still have a few spaces available to organizations interested in meeting with an incredible audience!
The OAVT is partnering with the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA, through a community project, to build a mountain of pet food donations to help stock the HBSPCA free Pet Food Pantry!
Help support this initiative by bringing a bag of pet food (no matter how big or how small) to the conference and drop it off at the SPCA booth on the first floor.
The HBSPCA recognizes that many families may face difficult financial times and may require assistance in caring for their pets. The HBSPCA free Pet Food Pantry program exists to support pet owners who are in need of support with pet food and basic supplies for their pets.
Beloved comedian Jessica Holmes has brought the house down opening for giants like Ellen DeGeneres, Russell Peters, Jerry Seinfeld, and Oprah Winfrey. She has also performed at Just For Laughs and The Second City, and starred in the hit comedy series, Royal Canadian Air Farce and The Holmes Show. Her hilarious take on life’s challenges as well as her unique knack for impersonating celebrities always leaves audiences in stitches.
Holmes, like millions of Canadians, has struggled both with post-partum depression and, as she puts it, “regular, run-of-the-mill, garden-variety depression”. Striving to help end the stigma around mental health issues, she openly shares her personal stories with the humour she’s known for, bringing light to what can often be a dark topic.
Today, Holmes’ greatest joy is working as an advocate for mental health and helping people take simple, sustainable steps towards fulfillment and well-being, one laugh at a time.
