English and French are the official languages of all federal government institutions in Canada.

Canada is similar to the United States in that it is a melting pot of different cultures and religions. Canada is a country without an official religion. Although about seventy-five percent of Canadian citizens claim to be practitioners of Christianity, religious pluralism is a valued part of Canada’s culture. Unfortunately, many believe Canada has entered a depressing “post-religious”period. This is a fancy why of saying that people have become cynical and stopped openly displaying their Christianity.
However, other religions still seem to be en vogue. The stark increase in immigration from areas such as Asia, Africa, and the Middle East has contributed to the expansive growth of Muslim, Buddhist, Sikh, and Hindu communities within the country of Canada. More exclusive religious cultures also call Canada home. These include the Bahá’í Faith, Unitarian Universalists, Judaism, Pagans, First Nations religions.
