I can't find it. A pity since it has more details how often they go to church per week, per month, per year, etc. and not just "xx% still attend the mass".
I did find some others...Canoe
: 77% are non-practising; 7% go to every mass; 42% say religion is still important in their life (?!?).Canada.com (from the Montreal Gazette)
: 20% still go to church once per month; 85% still claim to be Catholic.CBC
: in the rest of Canada, 32% attend the mass regularly, down from 75% in the 1950s; in Quebec, 20% still do so, down from 88%.A Canoe article
on a forum comparing Canada to America.
I'm not exactly well informed in this, so don't rely on me too much about this. It's a general perception that most Quebecois still claim to be Catholic, even if a vast majority don't attend the services or support the doctrine. According to the Wiki, Quebec is ranked to be the second province with the least percentage of atheists/agnostics/humanists (5-6% of the population). Newfoundland takes the top spot. This bipolarity confuses me sometimes since I live just a block from a Catholic church and I only see a few dozen mostly old folks going inside for the weekend mass.
