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.
