Cultural and Religious Identity Survey

Cultural and Religious Identity among 18-45 Year-olds in Canada Survey

This survey was a part of a four-phase research project aimed to develop and apply a web-based survey instrument on religious identity. Previous phases developed and pretested the core questionnaire (I); validated the questionnaire through its actual use in a concrete research setting with a select panel of participants who represented a broad cross-section of possible religious identities (II); use the questionnaire in a study that gathered responses from about 800 18-45 year-olds in Canada and began follow-up interviews with a selection of them (III); and, in the current phase, to expand this study to reach over 1,000 responses with 50 follow-up interviews, as well as begin to conduct interviews with a panel of longitudinal participants who also took the questionnaire (IV).

The overall goal has been to ascertain how Canadians in this age range construct and understand their religious identities and religious diversity in the Canadian context. A second goal, which remains to be achieved in a last phase of the project, is to further refine and improve the survey instrument itself on the basis of the results of the first phases, especially to improve the effectiveness of the survey in being able to detect and understand non-standard religious and also non-religious identities.

Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs

Le Berkley Center at Georgetown University a été créé au sein du bureau de John J. DeGioia, Président de Georgetown, en mars 2006. Le centre a été conçu afin de miser sur les forces de Georgetown: l'excellence académique; son emplacement à Washington, DC; sa portée internationale et sa tradition catholique et jésuite d'ouverture aux autres religions et au vaste monde séculier. Le généreux soutien de William R. Berkley, un membre du conseil d'administration de l'université, a permis la croissance rapide du centre.

Research Centres

The Project is happy to provide information about research centres, initiatives and projects across Canada and beyond that are focusing on the examination of religion, diversity, pluralism and society through its “Research Centres” page. Led by our Team Member Pamela Klassen and housed at the University of Toronto, the mandate of the Religion in the Public Sphere initiative is to examine how religion manifests in public spaces, institutions, and interactions, and consider the challenges and possibilities of religious diversity in Toronto and around the globe.
