Part of building community is creating opportunities to get to know one another.

Humanism is a philosophy of joyous service for the greater good of all humanity, of application of new ideas of scientific progress for the benefit of all.

Thank you for stopping by and checking us out! We hope you find our website fresh and intriguing. Secular Humanists of Calgary strives to be a welcoming place for both those who are new and visiting and those who make it their place to find and build community. We have included a few questions below that you may have about our community and your experience.
Will I fit in?
Affirming the worth and dignity of every person is one part of being a Humanist. We welcome people of all ethnicities, ages, gender, sexual orientation, abilities, and beliefs.
Will I be pressured to join or give money?
No. The right to a free and independent search for truth is one of our Humanist principles. Expect people to be friendly–you will likely be greeted, invited out to other events, etc. We do ask for support via donations because no community can exist without support by its community members but no one is pressured to give!
How do I get to know people?
Sadly, with the global pandemic crisis that is hitting our planet, 99% of our events are all online atm. We acknowledge that online meetups can be impersonal and challenging to form personal relationships, however, we do have a coffee and a walk (done with social distance) once a month. Once a month currently on a Sunday at 1 pm we are meeting at a coffee joint to grab a cup and then hit the trails to get some fresh air and build some social distance community. Consider joining us!
Do I have to pay to join your events?
So far all of our events have been free of charge. It does cost us money to have guest speakers join us virtually and share with us, but all of those costs are paid out of our own pocket (leadership). We do welcome donations to help us with these costs. We also welcome visitors who are interested in membership! Membership is $30/yr and helps to pay for all of our expenses.
