Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, is Canada’s formal head of state. The Governor General speaks to the Queen in Canada and completes the obligations of head of state.

The House of Commons makes Canada’s laws. Canadians choose representatives to the House of Commons. These representatives are called Members of Parliament (MPs) and for the most part have a place with a political party. The political party that has the biggest number of MPs shapes the government, and its leader winds up as head administrator. The executive is the head of government in Canada.

The Prime Minister picks MPs to fill in as ministers in the cabinet. There are ministers for citizenship and immigration, equity and different subjects. The cabinet settles on essential choices about government strategy. The Senate surveys laws that are proposed by the House of Commons. Senators are selected from crosswise over Canada. The prime minister picks the senators.

The Lieutenant Governor represents to the Queen.

he Legislative Assembly makes law. In Ontario, elected representatives are called Members of Provincial Parliament.
