Humanism is a world view which says that reason and science are the best ways to understand the world around us, and that dignity and compassion should be the basis for how you act toward someone else.

Our vision is a world where reason and compassion guide public policy and beliefs are respected— provided that they are compatible with the rights of others.


We promote the separation of religion from public policy and foster the development of reason, compassion and critical thinking for all Canadians, through secular education and community support.


Our key values are to uphold honesty, reason, critical thinking and cooperation in every facet of human interdependence.


We support initiatives and programs that advance Humanism and secularism and encourage the efforts of Humanists and Humanism-focused organizations in Canada.
