Critical Thinking may be the most important tool in the toolbox to push back against world events that have gotten out of control.
The Centre for Inquiry Canada provides practical information for Canadians about why critical thinking is important and how to be a better critical thinker. Faced with complex issues such as globalization and division, wars, populist game-playing, and misinformation from both domestic and international sources, our world, now more than ever, has a critical need for critical thinking
CFIC promotes evidence-based decision-making. By making decisions based on evidence, rather than emotion, tradition or religion, decisions can contribute to better outcomes in important areas such as environmental conservation, secular governance and rational policy making.
CFIC fights misinformation. We help people to find tools that identify misinformation and significantly biased information. We remind people to check before they share and we help people to understand why disinformation is spread and how to avoid being scammed by it.
CFIC promotes ethical actions. We share information that helps people to understand the ethical implications of decisions that they make, and work towards win-win solutions
CFIC helps to equip people with the skills and mindset to tackle complex problems, make informed decisions and contribute to a more rational, ethical and sustainable world.
