The breakdown of the Canadian census results is frustrating because it does not show Heathens, Druids, or polytheists; and the Pagan category includes Wicca. So it’s hard to compare with the UK data.
Indigenous spirituality … 29,820
Pagan (including Wicca)… 21,085
I’m disappointed that they didn’t list Heathens, Druids, and polytheists.
Other occult traditions
Unity / New Thought / Pantheist … 4,000
New Age … 1,525
Gnostic … 1,165
Satanist … 850
Nature-based religions from other cultures
Hindu … 297,200
Shinto … 545
Taoist … 3,440
Also of interest
Unitarian … 17,480
Quakers … 2,975

Wow, that really underscores just how small of a religious minority pagans are. I always knew it was a small number, but this is even tinier than I expected…

Canada is still very Christian, but I expect the Pagan numbers to go up, same as everywhere else.
