Welcome to hba-ncr. This is a resource page concerning Canadian governmental organisations within Canada and around the world. Our aim is to promote openness and accountability for Canadian citizens whether you live here or abroad.
Canada is a Western style democracy with distinctly European liberal values and influences, perched to the North of the distinctly un-European, second largest democracy on Earth.
Gradually we will build up a database of all these organisations, including Quasi Autonomous Non Governmental Organisations (Quango’s) and anything else linked or funded by the Canadian government.
The following chart details the structure of Canada’a system of government with the Queen at the head (as head of the Commonwealth) and an organisational structure taken from the British model.
It’s not all about government information though – every now and again we feature something a bit more entertaining. For many people that’s all about what Canada’s big cities have to offer – venues such as casinos play an important part of the economy and there’s no shortage of gaming destinations scattered around Canada. If you favour poker, blackjack, roulette or craps, you’ll find something to keep you occupied at all times of the day or night.
