Who makes the law?
Canada is a democracy. All three levels of government —federal, provincial, and municipal — are responsible for making laws in their own area of power or jurisdiction. These levels of government are made up of elected representatives of the public. That means that individual citizens who are at least 18 years old vote for someone they want to represent them in government. So, in a way, every individual Canadian contributes to making the laws since they vote for the people who they feel would best represent them in government.
