Frequently Asked Questions

The Canadian Secular Alliance will be developing responses to our most frequently asked questions:

Is the CSA trying to promote atheism, or turn Canada into an atheist country?

The CSA is a voluntary organization of Canadians who believe in church-state separation — the  idea that the government of Canada should not favour one religion over others, or religious belief over non-belief. Our goal is not to promote atheism — rather, our commitment is to liberal democratic principles of equality, fairness, and justice for all under the law, regardless of religious belief or lack thereof. We work with a variety of secular civil liberties as well as religious organizations that support the values of church-state separation, as exemplified by the One School System Network coalition we helped to build.
