The government of Ontario has given $23 Million (CAD) in funding to University of Guelph's Ontario Veterinary College to assist in building a new cutting edge clinical learning building.

The funds will assist in building a new learning space along with modern and flexible classrooms that will use patient simulators, computerized case studies and medical communications labs to give the students a hands on, interactive learning experience. In addition to this, the construction project will also include the renovating of the colleges existing veterinary hospital to provide additional new space for advanced surgery operations and anesthesia.

In total, the combined project will result in 70,000 square feet of new and renovated space.

In addition to research and teaching, the Ontario Veterinary College cares for more than 16,000 companion animals, domestic, equene, farm animal and exotic species every year.

The Ontario Veterinary College is a one of a kind college providing highly specialized training in veterinary medicine and it also makes a unique contribution to research in areas such as animal health, human health and food security.

The Ontario Veterinary College was originally founded in 1862 to train the people who were needed to care for horses in the colony of Upper Canada.

The provincial funds are part of the government's 12-year, $160 billion (CAD) investment commitment to public infrastructure.
