Canada is steadily becoming a nation awash with immigrants whose own cultural traits — from religion to language — are being felt on streets in cities both big and small. In total, 1.2 million immigrants came to Canada between 2006 and 2011.
About 22.1 million Canadians (67.3 per cent of the population) are Christians. Roman Catholics are the largest of that group, with 12.7 million Canadians (38.7 per cent) saying they are Catholics.
The Canadian constitution recognizes three distinct groups of Aboriginal peoples with unique histories, languages, cultural practices, and spiritual beliefs. More than 1.4 million people in Canada identify themselves as an Aboriginal person.
