Episode 39 of the New Leaf Project is here!

In this episode, Elle interviews Sarah-Wilkins Laflamme Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Waterloo. Sarah’s work focuses on the Religious ‘Nones’ in Canada, those who would say they have no religious affiliation.

Sarah shares some Canadian and Provincial statistics, national and temporal trends in religious identities in different demographics like the millennials and how various aspects of religion (belonging, beliefs & practices) influence individual social attitudes and action.
