Discussion 2024: Putting A Number on How Much Religion Costs in Canada

This online roundtable discussion about the cost of religion in Canada – quantified by original research conducted by the Centre for Inquiry Canada.

Bettianne Hedges of Humanist Canada will be hosting Leslie Rosenblood from CFIC alongside Teale Phelps Bondaroff and Ian Bushfield of the BC Humanist Association, who will discuss the many ways Canada still tangibly privileges religion and its institutions over similar non-theistic organizations. Just a few policy choices cost Canadians billions – yes, with a “b” – each and every year.
