VegOttawa Association was formerly known as the National Capital Vegetarian Association (NCVA).

While our corporate, not-for-profit name change process to VegOttawa Association has been completed, the updating of our online resources to consistently reflect that name change continues. Thank you for your continuing patience!

All references to NCVA, VegOttawa, or VO also apply to VegOttawa Association.
