The mission of The Naturist Society is to promote body, acceptance through clothing-optional recreation using the tools of education and community outreach.
The American Association for Nude Recreation is the largest, most long-established organization of its kind in North America. With roots dating to 1931, we have grown from our humble beginnings to an organization that has served 213,000 individuals throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and beyond.
The FCN publishes a quarterly magazine, called Going Natural / Au naturel, and information brochures. We give seminars and media interviews, and run naturism booths at various major exhibitions. We have affiliations with many Canadian nudist clubs, and close links with other naturist organizations. And we represent Canadian naturism at the congresses of the International Naturist Federation.
