History

whoweare-tnFounded in 1968, Humanist Canada has its roots in the former Humanist Fellowship of Montreal. This fellowship was an organization of humanists that was founded in 1954 by Drs. R. K. Mishra, Ernest Poser, and Maria Jutta Cahn. Lord Bertrand Russell and Dr. Brock Chisholm were its first patrons.

foundersHumanist Canada's first president in 1968 was Dr. Henry Morgentaler, an active crusader for women's right to reproductive choice. Humanist Canada continues to be involved in social justice issues including reproductive choice, the right to die with dignity, and the preservation of human rights.

Humanist Canada has grown over the past four decades to become Canada’s national voice of Humanism. We are also an associate member organization of the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
