How much does the Government of Canada subsidize religion? Over the next year, CFIC will be reviewing Canada Revenue Agency data to bring you the answer to this important question.

The need to retain Canada’s strength as a secular nation based on personal freedom, social responsibility and the rule of law is equally important (freedom from religion).
