Vegan philosophy and lifestyle

As a registered non-profit corporation, the Vegan Society of Canada is committed to our mission to make a meaningful impact through initiatives focused on protecting the environment and enhancing the health of human animals. Through our dual charitable purposes we contribute positively to the end of exploitation of animals, encompassing both non-human and human animals.

Employing diverse approaches such as public outreach, articles, and information sessions, the Vegan Society of Canada aims to fulfill its mission. The organization is also proud to be a member of the Vegan World Alliance (VWA), collaborating with others when deemed appropriate to further shared objectives.

Recognizing the comprehensive nature of our mission, we actively engage in efforts that address the diverse needs of animals. While donors often direct funding toward companion animals, the Vegan Society of Canada endeavors to fill a critical gap as a nationwide charitable organization. Our focus extends beyond a specific subset of animals, having the interest of all animals at heart, including human animals.

Join the Vegan Society of Canada in supporting our mission and help us shape the future of veganism.
