VegOttawa (VO), formerly the National Capital Vegetarian Association (NCVA) is operated entirely by volunteers. It needs membership revenues to continue performing its outreach work in the community.
Membership is open to anyone. The annual cost is $20. There are no responsibilities associated with membership (although members are welcome to attend our Annual General Meeting, if they so wish!). Our members can receive discounts at various local vegan-friendly businesses, as well as a discount on attending VO potlucks!
When you become a member online, VO receives etransfer notification and a membership card is mailed to the address provided with the etransfer or listed on your PayPal account. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
