Specific issues cited for Canada:
Preferential treatment is given to a religion or religion in general
Legal or constitutional provisions exclude non-religious views from freedom of belief
State-funding of religious institutions or salaries, or discriminatory tax exemptions
There is state funding of at least some religious schools
Religious schools have powers to discriminate in admissions or employment
Discriminatory prominence is given to religious bodies, traditions or leaders
Religious groups control some public or social services
Criticism of religion is restricted in law or a de facto ‘blasphemy’ law is in effect
