Jukier, R., & Woehrling, J. (2015). Religion and the Secular State in Canada 


Religion and the Secular State in Canada aims to analyze the relationship between religion and Canada in the context of public and private law. The report outlines the religious and social composition of Canada, the theoretical and scholarly context, the constitutional and legal context, state and religious autonomy, legal regulation of religion as a social phenomenon, state financial support for religion, civil legal effects of religious acts, religious education of the youth, religious symbols in public places, and hate speech, specifically looking at freedom of expression and offences against religion.

The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
