We are a part of the national educational charity, Centre for Inquiry Canada (http://centreforinquiry.ca/) with a mission to provide education and 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.
The purpose of the Centre for Inquiry Canada (CFIC) Saskatoon is to support its members and the local community through social activities and educational outreach. It also undertakes activism and collaboration to promote and defend secularism, separation of church and state, science, reason, and free inquiry. The group holds regular meetings and hosts public events, such as the Darwin Day celebration, film screenings and public lectures. The members of the CFIC Saskatoon are atheists, agnostics, secular humanists, freethinkers, skeptics, Brights, and other heathens.
Freethinker is defined as “one that forms opinions on the basis of reason independently of authority; especially one who doubts or denies religious dogma.”
