One School System Network

The Centre for Inquiry was a founding member of the One School System Network, a coalition of secular advocacy, religious, civil rights, and teacher and trustee organizations that joined forces to demand the end of government funded Roman Catholic public schools in Ontario. The coalition was founded in 2007 in the offices of CFI Ontario and quickly became an important player in opposing the proposal to fully fund all private faith schools in the province, which was the defining issue of the 2007 provincial election. The Network has also served as a model for similar bodies across Canada dedicated to ending government funded faith-based education and other forms of tax-payer support for religion.

Humanist Representation on Campus

CFI succeeded in having the first official humanist councillor listed as an alternative to religious chaplains for providing psychological and social services at the University of Toronto.
