Critical Links 2015/07/07 CFIC Membership Drive

July 7, 2015


CFI Canada’s mission is to provide education and training to the public in the application of skeptical, secular, rational and humanistic inquiry through conferences, symposia, lectures, published works and the maintenance of a library.

As the National Executive Director of CFI Canada, one of the messages I hear most frequently when I meet a new member or volunteer is “Why has it taken so long for me to learn about CFIC?  Finally there is a place for people like me.” Indeed, Centre For Inquiry Canada is your community for science and secularism.  Now we are announcing a discounted membership fee!

Annual Membership fees are now only $30!
This summer we are calling to you to join CFIC – as a registered charity without government funding, we rely on donations and membership fees to carry out important work, like representing the views of atheists, skeptics, agnostics – diverse non-believers like you.
Recently we announced that CFIC has been invited as a member of Canada’s Office of Religious Freedom External Advisory Committee This is an historic opportunity for CFIC to represent the non-religious community on matters of international freedom of religion – and freedom from religion.
CFIC will ensure that the non-religious voice is heard through Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development.
What kinds of things do we expect to speak about?
  • Attacks on secular bloggers in Bangladesh
  • International Blasphemy Laws and repealing Canada’s blasphemy law
  • CFIC’s lead in forming the International Coalition Against Blasphemy Laws and the repeal of Laws in Iceland and Norway
  • Speaking out for secular bloggers like Raif Badawi

Faith-based bigotry and oppression has seen a violent and terrible resurgence in 2015 – CFIC is taking a lead in condemning that violence and will continue to be a voice for reason and change.

Please join today!  CFIC provides a voice for Canada’s secular, atheist, agnostic, free-thinker, humanist community – but we need paid-up members to prove that the non-believer community is growing and must be heard.

In 2014, CFIC members were divided into two classes…the “Friends of the Centre For Inquiry Canada” and the “Councillors”.  Friends are the general members and subscribers of the organization from communities across Canada.  Friends are Canadian secularists and skeptics like you!
We’ve cut the Friends of CFIC membership fee in half!
In our last membership appeal, I was able to let you know that CFIC has over 7000 Facebook connections and 6300 email contacts.  Today we have over 520 paid members!
CFI Canada is an effective and growing voice for secularism and science.  If you are a skeptic, atheist, agnostic, secularist, humanist, secular humanist….if reason and evidence are important to you, then CFIC is your community.  Please join and make us stronger!
 Please Join or Renew Your Membership Today

CFI Canada is Your Community For Science and Secularism!
