Who We Are

The Ontario Humanist Society is a group of Ontario-based Humanists with a passion for social justice, human rights, environmental action, science, reason, and artistic expression, who have established a provincially-based organization to complement the work of Humanist Canada and local Humanist groups.

What is Humanism?

Humanism is a non-religious ethical philosophy, a way of life and a way of thinking, that involves adherence to strong ethics, an emphasis on human rights and respect for the Earth and its creatures. A Humanist works toward creating a more humane and responsible world, with a commitment to reason and compassion.

How Can I Get Involved?

If you are concerned with Human and Civil Rights issues in secular society, such as Pro-choice, One School System, Equal Marriage, Gender issues, Dying with Dignity, Environmental justice, Science education, Intellectual Freedom, and other progressive issues, we may be able to connect you with other volunteers, speakers and organizations. You are also welcome to join our Facebook Group.

Please let us know if you’d like to start a new Humanist group in your area, or would like information about growing your current group. We would like to support you. For information on secular charities and humanist volunteering and activism, see how humanism helps.
