THE LARGEST VETERINARY LOCUM COMMUNITY ACROSS CANADA
Oxilia is a veterinary recruitment platform across Canada.
It was founded by two DVM students in veterinary medicine at the University of Montréal who wanted to be more involved in the temporary placement of locum veterinary.
The principle of Oxilia is simple. In order to meet the needs of the workforce and temporarily replace an absent or a veterinarian on the leave, Oxilia connects via its on-line platform to establishments seeking a replacement and animal health professionals (veterinarians , animal health technicians or veterinary students) available to fill a position on a temporary basis.
Oxilia's Latin derivative "auxilia", which means "aid", "relief" or "assistance", aims to help veterinary clinics across Canada meet their needs for animal health professionals and ensure the proper functioning of their establishment.
Today, Oxilia has a broad network of professionals of animal health, covering the entire territory of Canada.
Freely connect professionals of animal health and veterinary clinics to ensure better service to clients and patients.
