Vegetarian and vegan food is a popular choice at local restaurants and cafes in Montreal.
The popularity of these options, however, is being questioned by many locals.
With a growing number of vegetarians and vegans in the city, it is important to ensure that there is an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone.
That means making sure that people can feel comfortable with their own identities and being welcomed with a smile.
The city’s Vegetarian, Vegan and Vegetarian Friendly Committee has been working with local groups to help make sure that everyone feels welcome.
For example, in recent months, the committee has worked with the Montreal Vegetarian Association and the Montreal Restaurant Association to help educate people on the different types of vegan options in Montreal and how to navigate them.
While some of these restaurants are welcoming to vegans, others will not.
They are simply not accommodating to the vegetarian and vegan communities.
In order to be safe and comfortable, the city is encouraging the public to check with restaurants before making their reservations.
There is a list of all the restaurants that have been contacted by the city to help ensure that everyone is welcome.
Restaurants that have had to make this change include Chez Blanchet, Crescents, The Green Door, La Caracole, Les Miserables, Marie Tissot and The Place Restaurant.
A list of the restaurants in Montreal that have changed their vegetarian menu for 2018 is also available.
The Vegan Food Week will take place in the next few weeks.
The event will also include a special focus on the importance of plant-based living, and will also help raise awareness of the importance to all communities to be vegan.
With so many new restaurants coming to the city in 2018, we are happy to see that the community is starting to take action.
Please contact your favourite local restaurants to make sure they are accepting vegans and vegans are welcomed.
We are also happy to help promote a number of the local businesses to help increase awareness of vegan and vegetarian dining in the Montreal area.
