NPAHN is an elected executive committee of large animal owners at their Annual General Meeting – it is one of the stakeholders in the tripartite group of Large Animal Owners (NPAHN), the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) and the Designated Area Contract Veterinarians (DAVA) that set-up and operate the Veterinary Assistance Program (VAP).
NPAHN covers all areas of the Province of Ontario north of and including the County of Renfrew, the County of Haliburton, the Township of Addington Highlands, the Township of Carlow/Mayo, the Township of Limerick, the Township of Wollaston, the Georgian Bluffs Township, the Town of South Bruce Peninsula, and the District Municipality of Muskoka.
NPAHN has created 20 local committees in their designated communities that represent the large animal owners – the users of the Veterinary Assistance Program. These committees are called Veterinary Service Committees (VSC’s) - they represent all large animal owners in their designated areas, advise NPAHN of local large animal health care issues, make suggestions for program improvements, name the contract vet(s) yearly that they want to provide health care services under the Veterinary Assistance Program and seek replacement veterinarians as the need arises.
