KIM AND STU LANG COMMUNITY HEALTHCARE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM (CHPP)
Ontario Veterinary College
Kim & Stu Lang Community Healthcare Partnership Program
The Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) envisions a future where vulnerable humans and animals in Canada enjoy better health, stronger social supports, and integration into their communities. We see strong communities that employ One-Health interventions, building on the human-animal bond as a gateway for engaging marginalized people and animals, building trust, and achieving reconciliation and self-determination. An $11M gift from benefactors Kim & Stu Lang in November 2019 has permitted a giant leap towards this future. Our team is currently visioning how the Community Healthcare Partnership Program (CHPP) will interact with the Sheltering and Animal Welfare Community in Canada. We hope to provide some background on our project and engage participants in sharing with us their views of our collective future.
