Three-in-five Canadians believe in some sort of life after death—a belief that has mostly held steady over the past decade, according to a new survey.

While roughly 40 percent of those polled believe life beyond their current existence isn’t likely, only 13 percent of Canadians were sure life after death was impossible, found the survey, conducted by the Angus Reid Institute in partnership with Cardus.

Roughly 60 percent of the 2,000 respondents believe in the afterlife, but just what that entails varies by religion.

Evangelical Christians were the most likely to believe in life after death, at 92 percent, while those of the Jewish faith expressed the most skepticism. Only 40 percent of Jews polled believe in life after death, according to the survey.
