Job Details: Small animal Veterinarian. 2 years experience minimum. Must be competent at routine surgeries and dentals. 

Their experienced, friendly and progressive team is seeking a full-time licensed Veterinarian to join their growing clinic in the city of Grande Prairie, Alberta.

Their trio of experienced Veterinarians is supported by 12 awesome RVTs & support staff, and they are looking to nurture the establishment of an additional full-time Veterinarian. They celebrate best practices, and support one another. They work collaboratively, and have regular doctor’s meetings to ensure consistency and open communication. Together, they run a busy clinic, and it is this togetherness and commitment to each other that has led to success and such a loyal client base. In support of your medicine, you will have an in-house lab coupled with Cornerstone, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, laser therapy, and ultrasound.

You will be scheduled for 40 hours over 5 days, and while they do require on-call shifts, the service is shared with another veterinary clinic.

 The opportunities for professional growth in this modern small animal practice are limited only by your imagination!  They can provide orthopedic mentorship to those interested (although interest in Orthopedic Surgery is not required for this role). Without specialists in their immediate area, you truly get to practice the art of veterinary medicine. You will be able to independently provide clients with a comprehensive plan from start to finish.

Grande Prairie is a vibrant and growing northern community of over 63,000. Their city offers all the amenities, with the added bonus of a Great Canadian Outdoor playground on your doorstep. Grande Prairie is the hub of the Alberta and BC Peace Region, and provides quick access for outdoor enthusiasts to world-renowned hiking, fishing, kayaking, skiing, snowshoeing, and river boating. Snowmobilers enjoy the supreme winter-wonderland trails that become increasingly secluded as one travels west into the Rocky Mountains, and between the months of May and October these trails transform into superb ATV and mountain biking paths. Explore Big Mountain Creek Provincial Park or Crystal Lake nearby, or escape for an adventurous weekend to the mountain town of Grande Cache, or Jasper National Park.

Grande Prairie boasts incredible value. Property and housing are readily available, and particularly affordable in comparison with the other 5 largest cities in Alberta. Grande Prairie is the type of place that allows you to live on an acreage and still be at work in 10 minutes! Residents of Grande Prairie can even claim 50% of the Northern living allowance on their taxes, and a healthy employment market makes the city attractive for family members too. A regional College, Hospital, Art Gallery, and the Eastlink Centre multi-sport facility are just a few amenities frequented by locals, with the Bear Creek Folk Festival and Grande Prairie Stampede drawing many from out-of-province.

Affordability, adventure, and all the amenities, without the traffic, pollution, or commute. 


  • A valid DVM from an accredited university
  • 2 years experience Minimum.

  • Passion for what you do every day
