Faith and Worship

Freedom of Religion

You have the right to observe your religion unless it interferes with the rights of others, or is a safety or health concern. You are entitled to the same opportunities as others and you must be treated with equal dignity and respect.

Freedom of religion in Canada is protected by the Canadian Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Human Rights Act.

Finding a Place to Worship

Having your own church or place to worship in your community can provide a great deal of joy.

There are at least 100 churches and places of worship throughout Northumberland County. To search for your church and its location in Northumberland, visit the settlement.org Services Near Me page.
