    A constitutional monarchy is a form of government in which a monarch, usually a king or queen, acts as the head of state within the parameters of a constitution. In this system, the monarch's powers are limited by the constitution and they primarily serve as a ceremonial figurehead, while the day-to-day governance is carried out by elected officials. Canada is a constitutional monarchy because it recognizes the British monarch as its head of state, represented by the Governor General, but the country is also a parliamentary democracy with an elected government responsible for making and implementing laws.
