There are three different levels of government in Canada: municipal, provincial and federal. Each level of government has different responsibilities. For example, the City of Edmonton is responsible for roadway maintenance, the Government of Alberta is responsible for health services and the Government of Canada is responsible for immigration. Many non-governmental organizations exist to helping people.
