New Survey on Canadian Religious Attitudes Explained in Latest Canada Watch

“This summer, the EFC commissioned a survey of Canadians about their religious attitudes and affiliations. We’ve done surveys like this every half-decade or so for the last 25 years. This one was the largest. The EFC’s Director of Research, Rick Hiemstra, agrees the evidence shows that Canadian society is not just changing: It has indeed changed momentously in this last decade.” Read more from EFC Vice-President David Guretzki on this survey in the latest Canada Watch. Also, don’t miss a summary of how your support helped bring biblical principles to Ottawa in the last Parliament, and how you can be involved in our work as Parliament resumes after the election.
