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.
