People who belong to “no religion” are second largest religious group in Canada

.- The second largest religious group in Canada, after Catholics, are those who identify themselves as belonging to “no religion,” according to a report in the Canadian newspaper the Globe and Mail.

According to a statistical profile on the family carried out by the Vanier Institute, 17% of Canadians have “no religion,” while the number of Muslims in the country have grown by 129% between 1991 and 2001.

The increase in non-traditional religions in Canada during the same period is also dramatically high, with the numbers of Buddhists, Hindus, and Sikhs all up by more than 80%.

The number of Presbyterians, a mainline Protestant denomination, however, declined by 35 per cent between 1991 and 2001.
