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 inquiry through conferences, symposia, lectures, published works and the maintenance of a library.

We are a community who put on events, workshops, conferences and work to promote critical thinking and evidence based reasoning in Canada and abroad.

Why We Need CFIC

For an effective democracy we need a voice of reason to stand up against alternative facts, political hyperbole and social media group think.

Our mission is to foster a secular society based on reason, science, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.

The core areas of our work include promotion of critical thinking, secularism, scientific skepticism, and community building.

We work towards a world where people value evidence and critical thinking, where superstition and prejudice are eliminated, and where science and compassion guide public policy.
