Recognition of religion or belief in Dominica

According to the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Commonwealth of Dominica are classified receptive.

Recognition of religion or belief in Dominica


  • Recognition and registration are amalgamated rather than ideally differentiated.

  • Legal registration is offered to religious organisations while places of worship and buildings used for marriage banns must register making Dominica only partially stipulatory.

  • An appropriate administrative fee for the registration process is applied.

  • The caveat of an exception to religious freedom provisions in the interests of “public order” is slightly subjective which must be monitored to ensure no misuse of this language takes place.

Positive elements:

  • The provision of religious freedom is generally upheld by the government.


  • Differentiate between existential recognition from legal registration.

  • Establish an independent recognition agency that can manage am established recognition system ectopolitically.

  • Remove the elements of the stipulatory registration process which may be applied mandatorily.
