Bill C-63 Canada Summer Jobs

Our religious freedoms in Canada are being restricted now more than any other time in our history.

The government has introduced new rules to businesses applying for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program. Many faith based organizations like churches and summer camps rely on this money to hire students for the summer.Now if they want funding, they must tick a box that states they agree with the government’s view of “Charter values” “other human rights” and “access to abortion”. Basically, groups that do not agree with the government’s view on abortion and sexuality will not receive funding.
