The intention is to provide a central organization to make the link between all our local associations, assist with funding when in the scope of charitable law, provide vegan certification at low costs, and generally provide the public facing organization for all things vegan in Canada. Unfortunately, so much funding goes towards small companion animals often because even though donors would like to help animals there is no Canada wide charitable organization that further the advancement of the vegan philosophy and as such help animals, we aim to be this organization. If you have something to share: News, events, vegan discount, reviews or anything you think could benefit all vegans living in Canada send us a message.Contact

We want to thank all our generous donors so far. We have completed our charitable status application and are awaiting decision by Revenue Canada. However we were notified that there is a 6 month backlog just to have our application looked at, and that 90% of applicant are rejected on their first filing. Nevertheless, with their guidance so far we hope to avoid the need to refile. Assuming we are accepted and depending on the effective date it is possible that we may be able to issue tax receipt to some donors, this is not a guarantee and donors will be notified if applicable. As usual we will keep you posted as things move forward. Please continue to give generously so we can continue to further the vegan philosophy.
We choose the charitable model because we believe the gift of giving love and kindness to all animals is related to the gift of generosity and we will let other type of organization in the business of helping take care of non charitable activities. Since the scope of a Canadian charitable organization is somewhat limited in comparison to the entire scope of veganism we will limit our activities to allowable charitable activities such as the promotion and protection of health, research and general environmental protection through the promotion of veganism. In addition, we are all volunteers: There is no paid full-time, nor part-time, nor any other paid position. As such you can be confident that we aim to maximize the benefits that your funds will generate.
You can send us donation with Paypal or e-transfer at our email firstname.lastname@example.org or our bitcoin address.
Please contact us for gift over 10000$. We will respect a donor's wish to remain anonymous but will return donations that we deemed innapropriate, for example if funds come from the continued torture, cruelty, or harm of sentient beings.
While this case was ultimatly lost it is the statement by Associate Judge Eugene M Fahey, which finally shows the shift in our society being taking into account in the courtroom:
"The issue whether a nonhuman animal has a fundamental right to liberty protected by the writ of habeas corpus is profound and far-reaching. It speaks to our relationship with all the life round us. Ultimately, we will not be able to ignore it."
While we are encouraged that a recent study shows that 53% of Canadians eat meat alternatives we hope to be able to raise the amount of people who are committed to Veganism from 2%. Hopefully new products will make it easier for the 69% of people who prefer meat to make the move. Until then contact us and you local community for support in your lifestyle change.
