Introduction to Canada
Canada is a parliamentary democracy whose officials are elected by the population. The head of the government is the Prime Minister.Officially, the prime minister is appointed by the Governor General of Canada, but by constitutional convention, the prime minister must have the confidence of the elected House of Commons. Normally, this is the leader of the party caucus with the greatest number of seats in the house.
The House of Commons, or lower House, is the elected assembly of the Parliament of Canada. Its members are elected by Canadians to represent defined electoral districts or constituencies, also known as ridings.
Canada is made up of thirteen Provinces and Territories.
