The poll – which also shows that the majority of Canadian vegans are under the age of 35 – was carried out by Dalhousie University’s Dean of the Faculty of Management, Sylvain Charlebois.

Responses from 1,049 adult Canadians were used in the survey, which was conducted by third-party data collector Qualtrics. Results are considered accurate within plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Charlebois said: “It’s quite astonishing. These numbers are the highest in the country.”

Data

Just 2.3 percent of Canadians (all ages) identify as vegan – up to 7.1 percent vegetarian.

In B.C., around 8.6 percent identified as vegetarian, with an additional 3.9 percent saying they are vegan.
