What we're about

This Meetup is a place for Montreal's skeptical, atheist, secular, and humanist communities to gather. It is sponsored by the Montreal branch (http://www.cficanada.ca/montreal) of the Centre For Inquiry Canada (http://www.cficanada.ca/). CFI Canada is a registered educational charity that promotes skepticism, critical thinking, secularism, and free thought; it is the largest such organisation in the country, with a branch in every major city. If you are interested in these subjects and in seeing them promoted in Canada, we urge you to join (http://www.cficanada.ca/support/).

We organise many activities related to secularism and atheism, including lectures, social gatherings, and a book club. We also publicize relevant events in Montreal that haven't been organized by CFI Montreal; if you are aware of any, please tell us so that we can post them! You can look at our list of previous events to get an idea of what we offer and what our members might be interested in.

Some CFI Montreal events carry a small fee to cover expenses. This fee is reduced for students (with ID) and is reduced or waived altogether for CFI Canada members (with ID). Any fees will be listed in the event details. And again, we urge you to become a member (http://www.cficanada.ca/support/) of CFI Canada.

You can also find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/61982200483/), where most of our online discussion occurs. If you're interested in joining the community, please do! We hope to foster discussion and activities about all manner of free thought issues, and we need your participation to make it happen.

Skeptics in the Park

Location visible to members

Montreal Skeptics in the *Blank* is a casual social event for those who value critical thinking, skepticism, science, and a dash of atheism and secularism. Join us for conversation, drinks, and food in a friendly atmosphere. During this time of covid-19 physical distancing, our in-person meetings will move from the pub to the park, where we can spread out and have the wind whisk away the contagion. We'll meet at 2:00 near the entrance from the metro and parking lot and gather for a few minutes. This will be chaotic, so everyone keep your eyes sharp and look conspicuous. We'll also need to find a spot large enough for our crowd to spread out. We'll look for a place near the entrance and easy to find, but no guarantees are offered. Once a location has been selected, we'll try to post it here in the comments. Barbeques are allowed in the park, if anyone is brave enough. Otherwise, bring your own prepared food and drinks, as sharing isn't a great idea these days. Blankets, sun hats, and games are optional....

During this time of covid-19 physical distancing, we're moving some of our activities from the pub to the cloud, for those out of town and those who choose not to leave home. The fourth Saturday of each month, we'll meet on Zoom. The link to the Zoom server will be posted here in the sidebar on the right, a few days before the event itself.
