We are a group of people from London, Ontario, Canada, and the surrounding area who share the view that humans can live a meaningful, ethical, and joyful life without belief in religion or the supernatural. If you believe in reason, compassion, critical thinking, science, justice, integrity, equality, and tolerance … welcome to our community!

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.
— Humanist Canada

What WE DO

  • We meet on the second Wednesday of each month (except July, August, and December) at 7:00 pm in the Stephenson & Hunt Room at the London Central Public Library, 251 Dundas Street in London, Ontario.

  • We usually have guest speakers presenting on a variety of topics such as humanism, science, philosophy, or history, followed by a time of discussion and an opportunity to mingle over juice and cookies.

  • Each year we also host larger meetings for the general public, and we have fun at our summer and winter solstice parties in July and December.

  • We are affiliated with Humanist Canada, and we are registered as a non-profit charitable organization with the Canada Revenue Agency.
