UCalgary breaks ground on veterinary medicine facilities, receives additional $10M from AB


University of Calgary began construction on the Veterinary Learning Commons building at its Spy Hill campus. The new facility is expected to be ready by the 2025-26 academic year and, once complete, will increase the number of veterinary medicine training seats at UCalgary from 50 to 100. The Government of Alberta recently announced an additional $10M in funding for the project, bringing its total investment to $68.5M. “These facilities will provide even more testing capacity to protect the health of animals and support Alberta’s animal production industry and public health,” said UCalgary President Ed McCauley.
