Let’s Share What Naturists Know
by Karen Grant, FCN President
Earlier this summer, three young women in Waterloo-Kitchener were riding their bicycles on a lovely warm evening, and decided to remove their tops. They were enjoying the warmth of the air as they cycled, when they found themselves being pulled over by a Waterloo Regional police officer. The officer advised the three cyclists that they “would need to put on shirts”. The trio politely told the officer that they would not be putting on shirts. The officer explained that there had been complaints and that they must cover up. The three sisters proceeded to remind the officer that for a woman to be top free in the province of Ontario was legal and went a step further to explain again the history of how this came to be.
The results of the survey on Canadians’ experience and attitudes toward nudity and naturism is now available. Identifying the size of the movement has always been challenging. While it is easy to count members of associations and visitors to naturist facilities, that represents only a small portion of participants. That question was first answered through a 1999 survey.
To update the data, determine trends, and reaffirm the original conclusions, a new survey was commissioned. The Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN), the Fédération Québécoise de naturisme (FQN) and Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park used an Ipsos panel to ask a similar but more in depth set of questions. The survey was designed, implemented and interpreted by Mark Wilkins Communications.

The FCN is looking for volunteers
The Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN), founded in 1986, is an organization that was based on the principles of naturism as a philosophy of life that emphasizes respect for self, respect for others and respect for our environment.
Over time, an organizations direction often charges, following the ebbs and flows of its membership and the directors that govern it. While change is essential, it sometimes causes an organization to lose sight of its original objectives and goals.
Recently, the FCN Board of Directors has identified a need to shift the focus of the organization back towards the original ideals that were envisioned by the founding directors and members.
