The Anthroposophical Society in Canada is a charitable organization, with more than 500 members across Canada.


The purpose of the Society is to foster the life of the soul and a true spiritual understanding of the world, both in the individual and in human culture, based on the path of knowledge brought by Rudolf Steiner. The Canadian Society is affiliated with the General Anthroposophical Society at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. Across Canada there are members groups and branches where individuals meet to study and research, or to take initiatives such as organizing lectures, workshops, or conferences. Our intention is to make a contribution to the artistic, scientific, and cultural life of today, and for the future.

Anthroposophy must be there for those who in their souls seek a way to spiritual experience.

Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was a philosopher, scientist, artist, social reformer, writer, architect and scholar.

During his lifetime Steiner travelled and lectured widely through Europe and Britain. Recognising the need for social change, he stood at the vanguard of society, with the ideas and new perspectives that he brought to many professions and fields. Today they continue to provide inspiration and fresh impulses for cultural life around the world.

His early work was informed by the writings of Johann Wolfgang Goethe, of which he was a translator and commentator. He began the Anthroposophical Society in Germany in 1912 out of his work with the Theosophical Society.

In the early 1920s Steiner began to work with members of the Society to form practical institutions and activities of Anthroposophy including the first Waldorf School. During this time Steiner also founded the School of Spiritual Science. The School had a number of ‘sections’, which still exist today, including those dedicated to education, medicine, performing arts (including eurythmy) and agriculture as well as many more.
