The government’s mission is to encourage understanding among people, develop global citizens, support leaders, and contribute to the development of nations.
The government of Canada is the body responsible for the federal administration of Canada. In a constitutional monarchy, the Crown is the agency sole, assuming distinct roles: the executive, as the Crown-in-Council; the legislature, as the Crown-in-Parliament; and the courts, as the Crown-on-the-Bench.
However, three institutions—the Privy Council (conventionally, the Cabinet), the Parliament of Canada, and the judiciary—exercise the Crown’s powers. The Government of Canada can refer to either the collective set of all three institutions or, more specifically, to the executive—ministers of the Crown (the Cabinet) and the federal civil service (whom the Cabinet directs)—which collectively brands itself as the Government of Canada, or more formally, Her Majesty’s Government.
In both senses, the present construct was founded at Confederation through the Constitution Act, 1867—as a federal constitutional monarchy. The Canadian Crown is the key, or the most fundamental building block, of its Westminster-style parliamentary democracy.
The Crown is the establishment of the Canadian government’s executive, legislative, and judicial branches. The monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is personally represented by a governor-general (currently Mary Simon) and is the head of state. A prime minister “Justin Trudeau,” is the head of a government that the Crown invites to form a government after securing the confidence of the House of Commons, which is usually determined through the election of enough members of a single political party in a federal election to provide a majority of seats in Parliament, forming a governing party.
However, other elements of governance are defined in the rest of the Canadian Constitution, which includes written statutes in addition to court rulings, and unwritten conventions developed over centuries.
Legitimately, the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada is the body that advises the sovereign or their representative on the exercise of executive power. A committee almost exclusively executes this task within the Queen’s Privy Council, known as the Cabinet, which collectively sets the government’s policies and priorities for the country.
The Government of Canada comprises the Crown’s ministers and is chaired by the prime minister. The sovereign appoints the members of the Cabinet on the advice of the prime minister who, by convention, are selected from the House of Commons or, less often, the Senate.
Moreover, during its term, the government must maintain the confidence of the House of Commons, and certain essential motions, such as the passing of the government’s budget, are considered confidence motions.
