Looking at the national numbers for the last 10 years, the non-religious sector is growing fast (64 per cent), but not as fast as the population of Hindus (68 per cent) and Muslims (73 per cent). Islam nearly doubled its adherents in the past decade, edging past the one million mark. Christianity is the only major religion that is in significant decline in Canada, dropping 10 percentage points in 10 years.

In particular the main Protestant churches are collapsing. Numbers of Anglican and United Church Christians dropped 20 and 30 per cent, respectively. Catholics dropped slightly (0.5 per cent); Orthodox numbers managed to grow by about 15 per cent overall.
