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.

Mistaken Point, a 17-kilometre stretch of Newfoundland coastline that bears some of the oldest recognizable traces of life on Earth, including frond-like animals called rangeomorphs that looked more like plants, has been chosen as Canada’s latest World Heritage Site.

-The head of the United Nations Population Fund has, for the first time, described female genital mutilation as “child abuse”. More than 200 million women and girls around the world have undergone the procedure, where parts of the female genitals are removed. The UN estimates a further three million are at risk of being mutilated. The organisation had previously referred to the practice as a human rights violation, but has stopped short of calling it child abuse.

Upcoming Events

 

Every Saturday, the Humanist Association of Toronto (HAT) meets to discuss a topic decided upon the previous week. These are topics of Humanist interest, from a Humanist perspective. Meet our diverse group, trade perspectives in a free and open forum and learn from others as they learn from you! Feel free to join the discussion late and come to lunch if that suits your availability better Time slot: 11 am – 1 pm every Saturday Address: 519 Church St. Community Center
