  • This location is shown only to members

CFI Ontario's Toronto Atheists and Friends (TAaF) meetups are fun and fascinating discussion groups focusing on a range of topics within the realm of atheism. They're open to the public and everyone is welcome to join in!

Our GTA (Greater Toronto Area) Central meetup is normally held every FIRST Sunday of the month at 5:00 p.m., at Scallywags, 11 St.Clair Ave. West, reserved under the name 'meetup'. Exceptions to these location details will be posted clearly when and if they apply.

This is a free and open to the public event. However, we are able to host this and many other events of its kind due to memberships and donations given by people just like you. For reasons to join Centre for Inquiry, a full list of membership incentives and membership level options:

    Thinking MORE about the accessibility of meetup locations, I remember previous meetups at restaurants with tables and chairs where people on crutches would circulate among the tables to chat awhile. THEY tended to be the more interesting participants -- and NO WAY could they get up to the third floor of a building without elevators!

    Thank you everyone for an excellent first meetup, I didn't get to introduce myself to everyone but I look forward to getting to know those I didn't get a chance to talk to. I will definitely be attending the next event.

    We ate, talked, had drinks and had some unstructured and stimulating conversations. It was very easy to go up to the conversational clusters, get introduced, sit down and participate. There was a nice mixture of people there, ages ranging all over the place and with large variance in backgrounds as well. Things were friendly and the discussions spontaneous. I am quite glad I went and I will be going again next time, for it was a nice little gathering for an atheist like myself.

    This may be a duplicate -- a post from earlier this morning has never shown up. Re the rules about elevators and stairs for public buildings, there is more at issue than GETTING to the third floor. Should there be a fire or other emergency, getting OUT is a consideration. To my eyes, that narrow and steep staircase to the rooftop gathering space is a DEATHTRAP. But THANK YOU for the kind offer.

    Hmm, rail-less stairs. Well, if you are strong enough to step up and if you are okay with holding arms with a stranger, then my brother and I could help you up.

    There is also a trick where you sit down on the stairs and push yourself up to sit on the next step, one at a time. But that one doesn't work for people with shoulder pain, muscle loss, or wrist pain.

    Will attend if I am feeling up to all those wicked STAIRS! Any chance the group will move down a floor or two to the regular areas? That's an interesting place and we go there often -- but NOT to the roof!

    I would have liked to meet the group; but the kind warning below about the stairs at the venue suggests that this may not be the group for me. Like many others who might be interested in these discussions, I need an accessible location to be able to participate. Need some critical thinking around the basic issues of organizing!

    Warning about the WICKED and steep stairs at this place. There is no railing along some parts of the stairwell. It is my understanding that if this building were being opened under current law, the lack of elevators would make it illegal for public access to the top floor.
