2021 census: 34.6 per cent of Canadians don't have any religious affiliation

BY The Canadian Press, Oct 26, 2022 10:40 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Data from the 2021 census shows 34.6 per cent of Canadians don't have any religious affiliation.

That's up from 16.5 per cent 20 years ago.

Statistics Canada is also seeing another trend, with the number of Canadians who identify as Christian shrinking from 77.1 per cent in 2001 to 53.3 per cent last year.

Analysts say the growth in the non-religious population and the decline in people reporting Christian denominations are linked.

Islam is the second most commonly reported religion in Canada.
