The Chinook Project

The Chinook Project provides essential veterinary care to remote communities in Canada’s north.¬† The Project is based at the Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island, and has charitable status through UPEI.¬† Generous support from our partners, our supporters, and UPEI means that the services of the Chinook Project are provided free of charge to the communities we serve.

Each year, the Chinook Project responds to a request from  northern communities and takes 2-4 volunteer veterinarians and technicians, and 4-8 AVC students to the community and sets up a temporary free clinic that spays/neuters, vaccinates, and deworms northern dogs, as well as providing other veterinary care.
