About Us


The goal of this magazine is to connect with hundreds of thousands of vegans and people interested in the vegan lifestyle across Ontario’s beautiful land. We will feature vegan foodies, health transformations, products, animal sanctuaries, recipes, nutrition, restaurants and other businesses; all vegan, all based in Ontario or available to Ontario’s people.

Veronika is a passionate vegan, homeschooling mom to her three vegan daughters and multiple business owner living her dream as a graphic and web designer, now publisher of the first vegan magazine in Canada. As the founder of @ontariovegansmag, @simcomgroup, @vegmediaglobal and also selling Arbonne, you can tell Veronika likes to stay busy. She loves playing with her kids on the playground while the other parents stand on the sidelines – yoga, reading, baking, and running, among other things. Veronika went vegan over seven years ago after researching which foods were best to feed her newly (solid-food) eating daughter, stating it's been the best journey yet! Spread the vegan love.
