We are a registered non-profit corporation. Our mission can be explained in many pages or a few words: Reduce harm for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. Our main way to achieve this is to promote the adoption of a vegan lifestyle.
We aim to provide a central organization to provide the link between all of Canada's local associations, assist with funding when in the scope of charitable law, provide vegan certification at low costs, and generally provide the public with information, assistance and organization regarding all things vegan in Canada.
Unfortunately, so much funding goes towards small companion animals often because even though donors would like to help all animals, there is no Canada wide charitable organization to do so. We aim to be this organization. If you have something to share: News, events, vegan discounts, reviews or anything you think could benefit all vegans living in Canada, please send us a message.Contact

Thinking of forming a non profit? Instead, consider coming under the umbrella of the Vegan Society of Canada with an address like ottawa.vegancanada.org. Instead of spending time with Revenue Canada, spend time helping animals.
We are developing vegan financial services like daily banking and investments ETF. Contact us and add your name to the waiting list and be notified as funds become available. It is our mandate to ensure that our savings are used as loans for people and businesses that are compatible with the vegan philosophy as stated above.
