This section gives an overview of the policy and advocacy topics which the AVA is addressing.

Our advocacy work includes meeting with industry and government stakeholders, and members of parliament, to represent member views on a range of issues. We make a large number of submissions to government agencies on proposed changes to policy and legislation. We also respond to issues as they arise, to represent the views of our members, and try to effect change that will benefit the profession, animals and the community.

Our major advocacy programs are based on the AVA's three strategic priorities that represent the most important areas of concern to AVA members.
