Project Aims

The Religion, Gender and Sexuality among Youth in Canada project has four primary aims:

  1. To explore the constructions and management strategies undertaken by young adults (aged 18-25), both religious and non-religious concerning their sexual identities, values, and choices.
  2. To examine the significant social, cultural, and political factors that inform the above-mentioned processes.
  3. To study how young adults manage their religious, sexual, and gender identities.
  4. To generate rich qualitative and quantitative data that will contribute new knowledge and to academic and policy debates on religion, youth, sexuality, and gender.

The project will fulfill these aims through a web-based survey, followed up by interviews and/or video diaries with selected survey applicants who have stated their willingness to participate in such activities.
