SPA Canada is the instigator of societal change regarding veganism in Quebec. Since its inception, the organization has promoted a vegan lifestyle and actively promoted awareness. At the time, vegan documentation came from outside Canada or was in English and very little information was available on the subject. The general public did not know what ‘vegan’ meant and vegan food choices in grocery stores were rare; even finding tofu in large grocery stores could be difficult.
Today with the current world situation, veganism is a way of life popularized and understood by the majority. More and more people are choosing this humane way of life whether for reasons of health, animal or environmental ethics.
To promote veganism, SPA Canada has created World Tofu Day and participates in veganism festivals such as the Montreal Vegan Festival and the Toronto Veg Food Fest.
