Vegan Society of Canada

From links to local association, current events, resources and discussion on issues of interest to vegan living in Canada we aim to provide it all. Find Out More

Making the link

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.
