Welcome to the first River City Reasonfest Conference!

Winnipeg MintWelcome to the first ever River City Reasonfest, a gathering hosted by the Humanists, Atheists, & Agnostics of Manitoba. Please join us for two days of fascinating speakers, great conversation, and a chance to meet and interact with fellow non-believers.

Winnipeg, Manitoba is the unofficial “heart of the continent”. It’s home to the Winnipeg Jets, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Assiniboine Park Zoo (just to name a few), and the newly-opened Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Don’t miss out on great opportunity – register today!


Introducing our Master of Ceremonies!

Jeff-OlssonWe are very excited to announce that our Master of Ceremonies for River City Reasonfest is none other than Jeff Olsson, former Anglican priest and author of Leaving Faith Behind.

Jeff was 12 years old when a priest knocked on the door of the Olsson family home and invited him to attend church. Jeff accepted the offer and eventually became a born again Christian, played in a church band, taught Sunday school and served as an altar boy. By the age of 32 he had finished ministry training and became an ordained minister in the Anglican Church of Canada.

Jeff was an Anglican priest for ten years before he left the ministry. He loves to write about topics that examine the fringes between science and religion. He is a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and educator who thinks life-long learning is the key to happiness. Jeff tells it like he sees it and loves to hear the opinion of others. Jeff is past president of Humanists, Atheists, and Agnostics of Manitoba and calls himself an atheist.
