Description

The government of Canada is the body responsible for the federal administration of Canada. A constitutional monarchy, the Crown is the corporation 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. Three institutions—the Privy Council; the Parliament of Canada; and the judiciary, respectively—exercise the powers of the Crown. The term Government of Canada can refer to either the collective set of all three institutions, or more specifically to the executive—ministers of the Crown and the federal civil service—which corporately brands itself as the Government of Canada, or more formally, Her Majesty's Government.
