How does Canada's Parliament work?

The Parliament of Canada is one element of our system of government. It is made up of unique parts that fit together in specific ways like pieces of a puzzle.

Canada’s Parliament has two branches: the executive branch and the legislative branch. The executive branch includes: the Monarch, who is represented in Canada by the Governor General, the Prime Minister and the Cabinet. The members of the executive branch are the decision makers of Parliament; they implement the laws. The legislative branch, on the other hand, makes the laws. The legislative branch includes: the Monarch (represented in Canada by the Governor General), the Senate, whose members are appointed by the Governor General on the advice of the Prime Minister, and the House of Commons, whose members are elected by voters.
