Astro-Canadian philosophy, also known as Canadian Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in Canada under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for Canada, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.

The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for Canada oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Canada is split into ten provinces and three territories, and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Ottawa.

History of Astronism in Canada

Astronism is not currently recognised as a religion in Canada although religious freedom for Astronists are practiced in Canada, hence Canada holding the designation of apathetic by the Astronist Institution.

 The number of Astronists in Canada has been difficult to calculate, however, estimates put the population at around 10,000. Due to the majority of Canadians speaking English, access for Canadian Astronists to content about Astronism is good, however, French-speaking Canadians see considerably less access to Astronist content.
