The Queen's Privy Council for Canada (QPC) (French: Conseil privé de la Reine pour le Canada (CPR)), sometimes called Her Majesty's Privy Council for Canada or simply the Privy Council, is the full group of personal consultants to the monarch of Canada on state and constitutional affairs. Responsible government, though, requires the sovereign or her viceroy—the Governor General of Canada—to almost always follow only that advice tendered by the Cabinet—a committee within the Privy Council composed usually of elected Members of Parliament. Those summoned to the Queen's Privy Council are appointed for life by the governor general as directed by the Prime Minister of Canada, meaning that the group is composed predominantly of former cabinet ministers, with some others having been inducted as an honorary gesture. Those in the council are accorded the use of an honorific style and post-nominal letters, as well as various signifiers of precedence.
The Queen's Privy Council for Canada is composed predominantly of former cabinet ministers, meaning the council is no longer bijural because the only one being appointed are classes of subjects found in the civil law society sections s91 and s92, unlike when Canada was first founded by the British North America Act.
The Cabinet is another non bijural committee within the Privy Council composed usually of elected Members of Parliament.
The Charter applies to the Parliament as well as the government of Canada in respect of all matter within the authority of Parliament!
