Abstract: Modern liberal democratic nation states are faced with new challenges to their ability to sustain a collective identity among citizens from increasingly diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds. This Master‘s Essay examines questions about the most appropriate ways to take account of religion in a pluralist society, specifically as it relates to the education of young citizens in Canadian public schools. I use the Ethics and Religious Culture program adopted in the province of Quebec, examined through the lenses of a multicultural education model and a model of deep equality, to highlight the place of the study of religion in elementary and secondary education.
