All branches of the Canadian federal government are located and meet in the country’s capital of Ottawa in the province of Ontario. The Parliament of Canada consists of all branches of the federal government and is located at Parliament Hill.

Although the Federal Government of Canada is located in Ottawa, the official head of the Canadian government is the Queen of England, who appoints a Governor General to represent her in Parliament. The Parliament of Canada also has two other branches: the Senate and the House of Commons. The members of the Senate are appointed by Canada’s Prime Minister, while the members of the House of Commons are elected by the people.
