English Abstract

The evidence presented in this issue of Horizons speaks to the growing religious diversity in Canada. In particular, while mainline denominations, such as Catholic and Protestant, show a decline in the past decade, the number of adherents of other faith traditions doubled in the same period. Moreover, in recent years, issues of religious diversity have sprung up in a number of public policy areas, both in Canada and abroad. So what does all this mean? and does it challenge the way we treat issues related to religion in developing and implementing policy?
