Religion in Canada is characterized by diversity, tolerance and harmony. Canada is a multicultural society with a rich mosaic of religious, cultural, and ethnic communities. Consequently, its demographically heterogeneous population includes many faith groups who live side-by-side in relatively peaceful co-existence.

Although Canada has no official state religion, its constitutional Charter of Rights and Freedoms mentions "God" but no specific beliefs are indicated. While Canadian cities are religiously diverse, its vast countryside tends to be predominantly Christian and most people reported in the national census that they are Christians

Canada stands out as a model of tolerance, respect, and religious harmony in the modern world today. Support for religious pluralism is an important part of Canada's political culture.
