About Us

We are a group of people from London, Ontario, and the surrounding area who share the view that humans can live a meaningful, ethical, and joyful life without belief in religion or the supernatural. We meet in the Stephenson-Hunt Room at the London Central Public Library, 251 Dundas Street in London, Ontario, on the second Wednesday of each month (except July, August, and December) at 7:30 PM. We usually have guest speakers presenting on a variety of topics such as humanism, science, philosophy, or history, followed by a time of discussion and an opportunity to mingle over juice and cookies.

Each year we also host larger meetings for the general public (see announcement for our Wolf Hall event with Bob Ripley which was held on November 12, 2014), and we have fun at our summer and winter solstice parties in July and December.   Photos of our 2015 Summer Picnic

Our "mini-journal," The Enlightenment , is published quarterly in January, April, July and October. Special issues are published from time to time.

Our Humanist officiant is available to perform weddings, funerals, memorial services, and naming ceremonies.

One of our members, Goldwin (Goldie) Emerson, writes frequent columns relating to Humanism in the London Free Press.

We are affiliated with Humanist Canada, and we are registered as a non-profit charitable organization with the Canada Revenue Agency.

If you believe in reason, compassion, critical thinking, science, justice, integrity, equality, and tolerance … welcome to our community!
