NEW GRADS AND EXPERIENCED RVTs
The Animal Emergency Clinic of the Fraser Valley has been a well-respected emergency practice for 27 years. Located in Langley in the southern west coast of British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, our location is perfect if you enjoy an active lifestyle combined with big city culture. Mountains, freshwater lakes, and lush forests provide you with an abundance of indoor and outdoor activities to suit every lifestyle.
If you enjoy hiking, watersports, biking, horseback riding or snow sports, you’re going to love it here!
With our mild climate you will find plenty to do outside all year. Vancouver and the surrounding cities offer a diverse culinary scene, live music, art galleries and museums along with a laid-back west coast vibe.
AECFV opened its doors in 1996 and has grown quite a lot since then, but our values have remained the same. Provide the best care possible to the pets in our community. AECFV is partnered with National Veterinary Associates-Compassion-First (NVA C-F). NVA CV-F is a community of more than 100 specialty and emergency hospitals across North America driven by the spirit of collaboration and focused on empowering the advancement of veterinary medicine at the local hospital level.

We have a team of over 100 incredible individuals and are one of the largest and busiest ER-only hospitals in Western Canada, providing coverage for more than 100 referring general practices.
We are proud to have one of the largest blood banks in Canada. A project that started almost 25 years ago to ensure we had blood products for our own patients, now ensures all veterinary hospitals in BC have access! We are taking steps to expand our specialty services in Surgery, Internal Medicine, and Critical Care.

Our clinic embraces a fun, team atmosphere, offering many extras like a stocked lunchroom, giveaways for event tickets and gift cards, and staff meals and parties.
Providing an opportunity for our team to have fun and unwind outside of the hospital is important as well. We provide our social committee a yearly budget to organize activities throughout the year so you can recharge and connect with your teammates. We strongly believe in offering more than just a wage!
