British Columbia is one of Canada's least religious provinces. The BC Humanist Association is committed to building Humanist communities for those who share our values in cities and towns across the province. Together with our local affiliate communities, we host regular meetings across BC.
Our affiliation program is set out in our Local Groups Policy. Groups who affiliate with us receive support to help connect with Humanists and atheists in their area and become part of a network of non-religious people across the province. Apply to create a local group or to affiliate your existing group.
Attendees at events are expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct.
The Government of British Columbia gives hundreds of millions of dollars to private schools in the province.
Our new research shows that the overwhelming majority of these schools are for the religious or economic elites.
In this talk, BCHA Executive Director Ian Bushfield and Policy Research Adriana Thom will detail where this money goes, what these schools are teaching and who gets shut out.
And we'll let you know how you can help end the private school handout.
