Tim McQuaid approaches his job with the utmost respect. As a veterinarian working with the CFIA in Charlottetown, he is responsible for determining that livestock and meat carcasses are healthy and free of disease. "You remember in this job that the ultimate client is the public, including your own family."

He is also grateful for the opportunities and resources that the CFIA allows him, which help advance his career. "It inspires you," he says. "The investment the employer puts into you reflects the confidence they have in you and your abilities. It contributes to your sense of well-being." Tim feels that the Agency is a great place to look for a long-term position in veterinary science, offering new challenges and fresh ideas regularly. "It appeals to vets at all stages of their career," he says.
