About

Inspired by the Vegan Buddy program, in Victoria B.C, this is essentially a mentoring program. We match up experienced vegetarians, vegans or raw vegans with people interested in becoming veg*ns. The goal is to help answer any veggie related questions, share shopping and cooking tips and provide the assistance needed to help others on the veggie path. Mentoring can be done by email, phone, in person or a combination of all three, whatever works best for you and your buddy.

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.
