About Provinces and Territories

Canada is a federation, which means that the work of governing the country is shared by the federal and provincial/territorial governments. The objective of federalism is to allow the governments of a country as large and diverse as Canada to meet the common needs of all citizens, while also being able to serve the special interests and characteristics of the country's various regions and cultural/linguistic communities.

Discover Canada’s provinces and territories, their legislatures, their Lieutenant-Governors, Commissioners, and other officials.
