Riana Topan and Julie MacInnes – Helping Canadians Eat More Compassionately and Sustainably

Saturday September 9, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm | Miss Lou's Room | Workshop


Riana and Julie are campaign managers with the Humane Society International / Canada. They work to improve the welfare of farm animals and wildlife, as well as help Canadians reduce their consumption of animal products.

As the world’s population quickly approaches 8 billion people, our food systems are under increasing pressure to meet the growing demand — leading to compromises in animal welfare and environmental sustainability. Riana Topan and Julie MacInnes from the Humane Society International/Canada will explain the most important food-related changes happening today in the Canadian context. Find out what work is being done to promote the Three R’s of Eating: “refining” our diets by avoiding products from farms with the most abusive practices, “reducing” consumption of animal products and “replacing” them with plant-based foods.
