Faces of Canadian Nudism

Faces of Canadian Nudism

We meet several pioneering advocates for the nudism/naturism movement in Canada

In this episode, we'll delve into the history of Canada’s nudism movements. We’ll hear the stories of various Canadian nudist leaders, and learn how two distinct regions found common ground and forged a cooperative partnership, their shared aim to represent Canadian naturists across Canada and internationally. And then we’ll meet Petra Scheller, a woman whose relentless advocacy and effort in service of that union made her a face of Canadian naturism.
