Welcome to the Canadian atheists
People are more important than ideas, and atheism is normal. Canadian atheists cares about rights, freedoms, and the general well-being of atheists in Canada and internationally, which is supported by our efforts to normalize atheism in Canadian culture and throughout the world because not believing in deity concepts or religious ideas, regardless of popularity, is normal.
Our primary interests are for peaceful advocacy and the normalization of atheism. We are always willing to participate in public discourse as a means of engaging in a free exchange of ideas. As an integral part of our efforts to counter the varied attempts by some to vilify atheists or mislead others about what atheism is, we're also educating the general public on the meaning of the words "atheism" and "atheist."
While being an atheist can be a free choice, ultimately it's merely the consequence of not actively choosing to believe in any deities. Because freedom is protected constitutionally within our Canadian legal system as outlined by our national Charter of Rights and Freedoms (section 2) - particularly the fundamental freedoms of conscience, thought, opinion, and association - accordingly we categorically reject any notion that anyone should be required to justify being an atheist since freedom intrinsically obviates the necessity of any such justification.
