Membership & Discounts

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 (scroll down this page to see the current list), as well as a discount on attending VO potlucks and some events!

When you become a member online, VO receives notification and a membership card is mailed to the address provided with the etransfer or listed on your Square account. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Why Join – Member benefits

  • Local Discounts – VO works with local businesses to secure some sweet discounts for its members.
  • Making life easier for you – VO is working for you to identify and increase the number of businesses that accommodate vegan / plant-based diets.
  • Be heard – With a large membership base VO can act as a representative voice in Ottawa and the National Capital Region, reaching more people by participating in expos and other events.
