Yes! All food served at the conference will be plant-based and vegan, containing no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, or other animal products.


Note that attendees are on their own for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings, and are encouraged to make dinner reservations in advance as Toronto restaurants can be quite busy.

8. Can you suggest any veg-friendly restaurants in Toronto?


Toronto has some incredible plant-based restaurants, and is regularly ranked as one of the world’s best vegan food destinations. You can find a list of restaurants, stores, and other businesses on Happy Cow. We also suggest checking out Foodism's list of vegan-friendly restaurants

Animal Justice's executive director Camille Labchuk also tracks her favourite plant-based eats in the city. You can find her Google Map here.

Reservations are encouraged in advance, as Toronto restaurants can be quite busy on weekends.
