Sassan has been a Humanist ever since learning at young age that an egalitarian society must, by its very nature, be both secular and inclusive. He joined Humanist Canada in 2014 and performs bilingual Humanist ceremonies as an Officiant in southern Ontario. He takes an active role on social media and wedding forums to spread awareness of Humanism, the importance of ceremonies in our lives, and the freedom in Ontario to be married by an Officiant of your choice. His goal is to help every Canadian live their life freely and in accordance with their own values and belief without being compelled to participate in religious rituals or being restricted in their freedom by religious institutions to which they don’t even belong. An electrical engineer, Sassan is also the father of two children, a lifelong student of language and literature and an accomplished photographer.
