Benchmarking the Language Demands of Veterinarians in Ontario

CCLB, with funding from, and in consultation with the College of Veterinarians of Ontario, will benchmark the language demands (both French and English) of veterinarians in Ontario. The project will unfold during a one-year period beginning in late January 2024. The final report, expected to be issued in December 2024, will describe the benchmarks of the listening, speaking, reading, and writing tasks required of veterinarians in Ontario. It will provide a clear blueprint of the language requirements needed to work safely as a veterinarian in Ontario, based on Canada’s national language standards: Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) and Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC).
