Vegetarians and vegans now account for nearly 10 per cent of Canada’s population, and their increased presence is forcing the restaurant and meat production industries to consider new approaches.
According to research from Dalhousie University, there are 2.3 million vegetarians in Canada, up from 900,000 15 years ago. Another 850,000 people consider themselves vegan. Those two numbers add up to 9.4 per cent of the Canadian population.
