Islam in Canada

Last Updated on August 18, 2021

The number of Muslims in Canada is about 660 thousand people. Canada’s National Household Census in 2011 reported that the largest concentration of Muslims is in Ontario and Quebec.

Total population: 36.953.765
Muslim population (2019): 657.700

Calgary, Edmonton, Windsor, Winnipeg and Halifax also have significant Muslim populations.

The constitution guarantees freedom of conscience, religion, thought, belief, opinion, and expression. All individuals are equal before the law and have the right to equal protection and benefit from the law without discrimination based on religion.

In June 2019, the Quebec government passed and implemented a law banning some government employees from wearing
religious symbols while doing their official jobs. Despite the escalation of some incidents of Islamophobia in recent years, Canada is considered a model for the coexistence and tolerance of different ethnicities and religions and the positive integration of different groups, including the Muslim community.
