Just a handy list of vegan and vegan-friendly events including fundraisers, panel discussions, demonstrations, food justice focused conversations, race and food, amongst others. I endeavor to only add events from groups and organizations that I know have reasonable community accountability and offer safe spaces.
Events are primarily in Toronto, but also include events around Ontario, Northwestern New York State, Northern Michigan, and other places that are a short(ish) drive away.
I try and include venue accessibility information with every post. Not all events are accessible, but I will include that information wherever possible.
For local farmers market information please visit The Toronto Farmers Market Network for listings. Several Farmers Markets have specialized vegan vendors, in addition to offering all the beautiful local produce grown right here in Ontario.

WHO ARE THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE 7? On November 6, 2014, animal rights activists held a demonstration outside of St. Helen’s Meat Packers slaughterhouse in Toronto, in a non-violent act of civil disobedience intending to block trucks filled with innocent young cows from entering the slaughterhouse. The sitters were able to stop trucks from entering the slaughterhouse for more than two hours, with police observing. Chaos erupted after this time when slaughterhouse workers and management became physically and verbally abusive toward the peaceful sitters. Police responded by engaging in more violence towards the peaceful protesters, using excessive force against three of them and charging seven with various offenses. – See more at: www.meetmeatthestockyards.org/
ABOUT COWSPIRACY: is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population. http://www.cowspiracy.com/about/
