The Central Ontario Humanist Association (COHA) would like to welcome you to participate in our community. We extend our invitation to all Humanists, atheists, agnostics, non-theists, skeptics, freethinkers and other Humanist friendly people to join in our on-going discussion of engaging ideas and controversial topics and to share in our exploration of life and our community.
Started a decade ago, COHA is a group for non-religious people who believe in the majesty of the universe, who are in awe of life itself and who believe that it is incumbent on ourselves to live just and ethical lives. Our group believes that there is no topic or opinion too taboo to talk about.
We have social events through the year as well as regularly monthly meetings where we discuss interesting topics and try to raise the awareness of non-believers and expose others to new ideas.
We are a local affiliate of the Humanist Association of Canada (HAC). HAC is a national non-profit (and non-prophet) organization. HAC is made up of a number of local affiliates across Canada and provides services such as officiants for non-religious wedding ceremonies, funerals, memorials and child naming services. HAC aims to raise awareness of secular values, to advocate science and to protect the freedom of conscience for all.
Membership fees for our local group include membership in the national organization. For more information about HAC visit http://www.humanists.ca/.
