Ontario Humanist Society Officiants offer personalized secular ceremonies for all life passages, including child namings, weddings, funerals and memorials, and other significant life passage events. We will be happy to listen to your wishes, and work with you to design a personal ceremony that reflects your needs and your vision. 

All Ontario Humanist Society Officiants are licensed by the Registrar General to perform legal wedding ceremonies for the entire Province of Ontario.

LOCATION: We have listed our officiants in general geographic areas, with their  ‘home base’  listed next to their name.  Some of us travel widely  and serve a variety of other areas,  or we cover other areas in summer, such as cottage country. Officiants in the GTA/Golden Horsehoe may cover central Toronto events,  for instance.  Please contact each officiant individually to see if they are available for your specific location and dates. We will respond to you personally to discuss your request, provide sample ceremonies and suggestions, and offer a fee schedule, travel rates and more information.
