WHO WE ARE
Nation Rising is a non-partisan political advocacy group lobbying to shift multi-billion dollar government subsidies away from animal agriculture and towards the creation of a plant-based food system.
THE PROBLEMAnimal agriculture is destroying the planet, threatening the health of millions of Canadians, and causing large-scale animal suffering. This incredibly destructive industry continues to thrive because of unfair federal policies and subsidies that drive up the consumption of animal products by making them more appealing, accessible, and affordable.
OUR MISSIONChange federal food and agricultural policy to shift to a plant-based food system.
OUR VISIONA sustainable, ethical, plant-based system in Canada.
Our strategy is focused on research, education, and lobbying. We run nation-wide citizen lobbying campaigns and equip activists to have effective meetings with their MPs.
Powerful animal agriculture lobby groups spend millions on lobbying efforts every year in an effort to influence policy in their favour, and so far it’s been working.
Our strategic, large-scale citizen lobbying campaigns will help level the playing field, and ensure our government takes into account more than just industry interests, but the interest of people, the planet, and animals when deciding on important food, and agricultural policy.
We believe that through dedicated lobbying efforts, we can change federal policy to support a shift in subsidies away from animal agriculture and towards the creation of a plant-based food system for the benefit of the people, the planet, and the animals.
