The Association for Science and Reason (ASR) is a not-for-profit organization composed of diverse individuals. ASR’s mandate is to promote the understanding and application of critical thinking skills and scientific methodology via educational outreach, activism, collecting and disseminating information, and communication (with the public and the media).

We ask, “What is the evidence?” ASR examines extraordinary claims with an open mind, but exposes claims for which evidence and reason are poor. A few of the issues we examine are alternative medicine and pseudoscience, paranormal claims, conspiracies, cryptozoology, and hoaxes/frauds.

ASR established Toronto’s first and only Skeptics in the Pub (SiP) night, which takes place the third Friday of every month with very few exceptions. Past guest speakers have included the renowned author/psychologist/magician/skeptic Richard Wiseman; climate change expert Professor Danny Harvey; Executive Director of The John Howard Society of Canada, Craig Jones; Professor Spencer C.H. Barrett discussing some lesser-known facts about Darwin; and an exclusive Canadian talk by Kevin Dutton, author of Split Second Persuasion: The Ancient Art and New Science of Changing Minds. We also play ASR’s ‘patented’ Skepardy game at SiP and have screened the documentary Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus.
