Where are Saskatchewan Techs Working?

The survey had an excellent rate of response with 232, or almost 65% of our membership participating. The 2010 Survey had 231 respond. Not surprisingly, the majority of Techs are employed in mixed animal practices with small animal practice coming in at a close second.

The slide show will show a comparison between the 2012 and 2010 wage survey.
