The Centre for Inquiry (CFI) Okanagan based in Kelowna is one branch of CFI Canada.
CFI Canada is a registered educational charity with the mandate to educate and provide training to the public in the application of skeptical, atheist, secular, rational and humanistic enquiry through conferences, symposia, lectures, published works and the maintenance of a library.
We are a community of freethinking people who put on events, workshops, conferences and work to promote critical thinking and evidence based reasoning in Canada and abroad for greater community and cooperation.
At CFI Canada and in the Okanagan we focus on three strategic priority areas:
1. Human Rights
In all of these areas, we work to promote a scientific and secular humanist life stance, one that challenges established norms and customs and one that believes in the freedom of all individuals to ask important questions about life, nature and the world around them.
Centre for Inquiry Canada is the largest Freethought, Skeptic and Scientific Advocacy group in Canada. We operate through 10 branches across the Country and incorporate the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers in our daily mission to advance knowledge and education in all areas of human endeavor.
CFI Canada is supported entirely by voluntary donations and works across the country on issues that matter most to people like you. In our short history we have had influence in LGBT issues, in community service, on skeptical activism and had a significant influence in print, radio and television media.
