In the decades following Confederation, it was common practice to refer to the prime minister as Premier of Canada, a custom that continued until the first World War, around the time of Robert Borden's premiership.

31 The senate may delay or impede legislation put forward by the cabinet, such as when Brian Mulroney 's bill creating the goods and Services Tax (GST) came before the upper chamber and, given Canada's federal nature, the jurisdiction of the federal government is limited. Further, as executive power is constitutionally vested in the monarch, meaning the royal Prerogative belongs to the Crown and not to any of its ministers, the sovereign's supremacy over the prime minister in the constitutional order is thus seen as a "rebuff to the pretensions. N 4 near the end of her time as governor general, Adrienne Clarkson stated: "My constitutional role has lain in what are called 'reserve powers making sure that writing there is a prime minister and a government in place, and exercising the right 'to encourage,. Without really revealing any secrets, i can tell you that I have done all three." 37 Privileges edit 24 Sussex Drive, the official residence of the Prime minister of Canada Two official residences are provided to the prime minister— 24 Sussex Drive in Ottawa and. 38 For transportation, the prime minister is granted an armoured car and shared use of two official aircraft —a cc-150 Polaris for international flights and a challenger 601 for domestic trips.

John Thompson also died outside canada, at Windsor Castle, where queen Victoria permitted his lying-in-state before his body was returned to canada for a state funeral in Halifax. 40 The mark of the Prime ministership of Canada, applied to the arms of prime ministers who pursue them In earlier years, it was traditional for the monarch to bestow a knighthood on newly appointed Canadian prime ministers. Accordingly, several carried the prefix Sir before their name; of the first eight premiers of Canada, only Alexander Mackenzie refused the honour of a knighthood from queen Victoria. Following the 1919 Nickle resolution, however, it was against non-binding policy for the sovereign to grant such honorific titles to canadians; the last prime minister to be knighted was Sir Robert Borden, who was premier at the time the nickle resolution was debated in the.
Because the prime minister is, in practice, the most politically powerful member of the canadian government, he or she is sometimes erroneously referred to as Canada's head of state, n 2 when, in fact, that post is held by the canadian monarch, represented by the. 16 The prime minister is, instead, the head of government and is responsible for advising the Crown on how to exercise the royal Prerogative and its executive powers, 3 which are governed by the constitution and its conventions. However, the function of the prime minister has evolved with increasing power. Today, as per the doctrines of constitutional monarchy, the advice given by the prime minister is ordinarily binding, meaning the prime minister effectively carries out those duties ascribed to the sovereign or governor general, leaving the latter to act in predominantly ceremonial fashions. 17 As such, the prime minister, supported by the Office of the Prime minister (pmo controls the appointments of many key figures in Canada's system of governance, including the governor general, the cabinet, justices of the supreme court, senators, heads of crown corporations, ambassadors. Further, the prime minister plays a prominent role in the legislative process—with the majority of bills put before parliament originating in the cabinet—and the leadership of the canadian Armed Forces.
Pierre Trudeau is credited with, throughout his tenure as prime minister between 19, consolidating power in the pmo, 18 which is itself filled by political and administrative staff selected at the prime minister's discretion and unaccountable to parliament.

The reform Act, 2014, 30 codifies the process by which a caucus may trigger a party leadership review and, if necessary, chose an interim leader, thereby making a prime minister more accountable to the mps in his or her party. Caucuses may choose to follow these rules, though the decision would be made by recorded vote, thereby subjecting the party's choice to public scrutiny.

Once appointed and sworn in by the governor general, the prime minister remains in office until he or she resigns, is dismissed, or dies. 14 The lifespan of parliament was limited by the constitution to five years and, though the governor general may still, on the advice of the prime minister, dissolve parliament and issue paperwork the writs of election prior to the date mandated by the canada Elections Act. As of 2007, with an amendment to the Elections Act, section.1(2) was changed to limit the term of a majority government to four years, with election day being set as the third Monday in October of the fourth calendar year after the previous polling. 15 Following parliamentary dissolution, the prime minister must run in the resulting general election if he or she wishes to maintain a seat in the house of Commons. Should the prime minister's party subsequently win a majority of seats in the house of Commons, it is unnecessary to re-appoint the prime minister or again swear him or her into office. 14 If, however, an opposition party wins a majority of seats, the prime minister may resign or be dismissed by the governor general. Should the prime minister's party achieve a minority while an opposition party wins a plurality (i.e., more seats than any other party but less than a majority the prime minister can attempt to maintain the confidence of the house by forming a coalition with other.

For example, william lyon Mackenzie king, after losing his seat in the 1925 federal election (that his party won briefly "governed from the hallway" before winning a by-election a few weeks later. Similarly, john Turner replaced pierre Trudeau as leader of the liberal Party in 1984 and subsequently was appointed prime minister while not holding a seat in the house of Commons; Turner won a riding in the next election but the liberal Party was swept from. Turner was the last serving prime minister to not hold a commons seat. Macdonald, the first Prime minister of Canada (18671873, 18781891) Should a serving prime minister today lose his or her seat in the legislature, or should a new prime minister be appointed without holding a seat, the typical process that follows is that a junior member. 11 A safe seat is usually chosen; while the liberal and Conservative parties traditionally observed a convention of not running a candidate against another party's new leader in the by-election, the new Democrats and smaller political parties typically do not follow the same convention. However, if the governing party selects a new leader shortly before an election is due, and that new leader is not a member of the legislature, he or she will normally await the upcoming election before running for a seat in parliament. In a poll conducted by Ipsos-reid following the first prorogation of the 40th parliament on December 4, 2008, it was found that 51 of the sample group thought the prime minister was directly elected by canadians. 12 13 Term of office edit The canadian prime minister serves at Her Majesty's pleasure, meaning the post does not have a fixed term.
Contents Origin of the office edit The position of prime dillard minister is not outlined in any canadian constitutional document and is mentioned only in passing in the constitution Act, 1982, 4 5 and the letters Patent, 1947 issued by king george. 6 The office and its functions are instead governed by constitutional conventions and modelled on the same office in the United Kingdom. Qualifications and selection edit The prime minister, along with the other ministers in cabinet, is appointed by the governor general on behalf of the monarch. 7 However, by the conventions of responsible government, designed to maintain administrative stability, the governor general will call to form a government the individual most likely to receive the support, or confidence, of a majority of the directly elected members of the house of Commons. 9 While there is no legal requirement for the prime minister to be a member of parliament, for practical and political reasons the prime minister is expected to win a seat very promptly. 10 However, in rare circumstances individuals who are not sitting members of the house of Commons have been appointed to the position of prime minister. Two former prime ministers—Sir John Joseph Caldwell Abbott and Sir Mackenzie bowell —served in the 1890s while members of the senate. 11 Both, in their roles as government leader in the senate, succeeded prime ministers who had died in office— john. Macdonald in 1891 and John Sparrow david Thompson in 1894.
