About us


Centre for Inquiry Canada is a registered educational charity with the mandate to educate and provide training to the public in the application of skeptical, secular, rational and humanistic enquiry through conferences, symposia, lectures, published works and the maintenance of a library.

We are a community of freethinking people who put on events, workshops, conferences and work as activists to promote evidence based reasoning in Canada and abroad.

At CFI Canada we focus on three broad areas of education and activism: 1. Religion 2. Pseudoscience, Paranormal and Fringe-science claims, 3. Medicine and Health. In all of these areas, we work to promote a scientific worldview, one that challenges established norms and customs and one that believes in the freedom of all individuals to ask important questions about life, nature and the world around them.

Centre for Inquiry is the largest Freethought, Skeptic and Scientific Advocacy group in Canada. We operate through 10 branches across the Country and incorporate the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers in our daily mission to advance knowledge and education in all areas of human endeavor.

CFI Canada is supported entirely by voluntary donations and works across the country on issues that matter most to people like you. In our short history we have had influence in LGBT issues, in community service, on skeptical activism and had an unprecedented influence in print, radio and television media.
