Quebec is the least religious province in Canada, obviously

“Canada’s religious core continues to be found in the Prairie provinces.”

According to a study by the Angus Reid Institute on spirituality, Quebec is the least religious province in Canada, while the Prairies are the most religious.

Those who the survey categorize as “Privately Faithful” and “Religiously Committed” make up just 24% of Quebecers. In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, at least 42% of residents fall into those two categories.

“Canada’s religious core continues to be found in the Prairie provinces. In Alberta (24%), Saskatchewan (25%), and Manitoba (25%), one-quarter of residents are categorized as Religiously Committed on the Spectrum of Spirituality. Quebec residents are most likely to eschew religion, whether more personal or overtly formal.”
