Last week, Canada’s Statistical Office published their 2021 census results.

The number of people who identified as Christians in general decreased from 67.3% in 2011 to 53.3% in 2021.

Over that same time, the number of people who identified as Catholics decreased from 12.8 million faithful to 10.9 million.

Religiosity also declined in Canada.

Only 20% of Canadians in 2019 attended religious activities once a month, compared to 40% that did so in 1985.

Today, Catholics in Canada are 29.9% of the population, or about every 3 in 10 Canadians.

From 2020 to 2021, targeted crime against Catholics increased 260% according to the Catholic Civil Rights League in Canada.

“Undoubtedly, this increase can be attributed to attacks on Catholic churches in Canada in 2021, including the deliberate burning down of churches. The CCRL had reported that the period from May through August of last year witnessed more attacks on Catholic churches than during any other period. Mainstream media has reported the overall 27% increase, but the most staggering of all increases, the 260% rise in anti-Catholic hate crimes, has been largely ignored.”
