The Vegan Business Directory Project needs your help!

Here’s an opportunity for you to tell us your favourite vegan products and services in the Edmonton area!!

VVOA is compiling a vegan business directory, to help Edmontonians locate hard to find vegan products and services. Where do you find non-leather shoes and belts? Are you, or do you know someone who is vegan with a business? Help us to put all of these businesses in one easy to access location!

Please send your recommendations to leighannaplumpton [at] gmail.com. Thank you!


What is the VVoA?

Vegans and Vegetarians of Alberta (VVoA) is a registered, non-profit society formed in 1989 to serve people who are interested in learning about, adopting and/or maintaining a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. VVoA is a non-political and non-religious organization run solely by volunteers. We strive to be a reliable source of information concerning vegan or vegetarian, health, environment and animal rights issues.

The VVoA regularly organizes social events such as potlucks, diners club meetups, tablings, and bake sales. We also host speakers and films for educational purposes. You do not have to be a vegan or vegetarian to participate in our events; everyone is welcome!

We encourage you to purchase a membership to VVoA, which helps pay for event expenses. In return, your membership card provides you with discounts at many of VVoA’s events, as well as at participating restaurants and shops. For more information, please visit our Diner’s Guide page.

Please contact us if you have any questions, or would like to volunteer with the VVoA.
