At just over 150 years since confederation, Canada is changing fast and faces new spiritual challenges. Bible reading and Scripture engagement is declining at an alarming rate, with only 11% of Canadian Christians reading their Bible at least once a week*.
The share of people who report having no religion will continue to grow, to about a third of the population compared with 24% in 2011**. With the increase in immigration and minority religions in Canada, many first-generation Canadian children are not hearing the Gospel.
