Belshaw, J. D. (2016). 10.5 Secular Canada. In Canadian History: Post-Confederation. BC Campus.


Secular Canada defines modernity and secularism in Canada and the history and reception of  secularism and anticlericalism in different parts of Canada. The section also highlights the responses from religious activists and groups, noting how secularism and modernity is marginalizing religious communities. An image of the table of contents of the journal, “Secular Thought”, is also featured.


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.
