Three of our SOFREE members are Humanist Officiants.
Officiants with Humanist Canada undergo background checks, character references, interviews, and training. They are selected on the basis of education, life experience, writing and presentation skills, and ongoing commitment to Humanist principles.
Historically in Ontario, couples had only two choices: a religious ceremony in a church or a civil ceremony at city hall. Each had its own restrictions that must be adhered to, and limited choice in the style and wording of the ceremony.
Humanist weddings are different. Humanist Officiants have the freedom to create a unique, personalized ceremony that symbolizes your commitment to one another. You and your Humanist Officiant will write the ceremony together, based on your preferences and expressing your individual personalities.
Humanist officiants are trained by Humanist Canada and licensed by the Province of Ontario. SOFREE provides these names for your convenience and does not endorse any particular officiant(s). For a complete list go to: Humanist Canada.
