We are a registered non-profit corporation. Our vision can be explained in many pages or a few words: to end the exploitation of all animals, including human animals. Our main way to achieve this is to promote the adoption of a vegan lifestyle.
The promotion of a vegan lifestyle achieves our dual charitable purpose of protecting and maintaining both the public's health and the environment. We do this through various means like public outreach, articles, information sessions, etc. As a member of the Vegan World Alliance (VWA) we cooperate with others when appropriate to achieve our vision and mission.
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. Please join us in our efforts to benefit all animals, including human animals, and the environment through a vegan lifestyle.Contact
