Monthly Meetings

We love to learn new things and seek new perspectives on the world. This is because we want to know as many true things and as few false things as possible.

We meet monthly on the last Wednesday of the month at the Loblaws Community Room on Bayfield St. to discuss interesting ideas and debate controversial topics. Your first three meetings are free.

Learn with us


We are a social and education organization. As Humanists we understand the needs to meet with like minded people and to be free to speak your mind.

On top of our monthly meetings, we discussion ideas online via email groups and Facebook groups. Be part of our community.

Who We Are

We are a community of non-believers. We invite all Humanists and Humanist-friendly people to participate with us, including atheists, agnostics, skeptics and other free-thinkers.

What we Like

Humanists love science and philosophy. Our meetings tends to include learning about science, talking about ethics, listening to charities and policy groups. We like to learn new things, and figure out how to make the world a better place.

We endeavour to be guided by discussion, debate and rational thought when making choices. We come together to disagree: it's our like minded approach to knowledge and reason that draws us together, not our conclusions. Where Humanist associations exist, we prize honest discussion, critical thinking, ethics, science and community.
