Anglicanism in Canada ‘one generation from extinction,’ says report

February 10, 2010

A report prepared for the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia has found that Anglicanism in Canada is “one generation away from extinction.” Between 1961 and 2001, the ecclesial community lost 53% of its members.

43% of Canada’s 33.5 million residents are now Catholic, while 23% are Protestant (including Anglican). An increasing number of Canadians profess no religion.

“The unchurched are not coming to us,” the report added. “Lapsed Anglicans are not coming back in sufficient numbers.”
