Canada has a parliamentary system of government, while the US has a presidential system.

Canada is a confederation where the provinces individually have more power than do the states in the federation that is the United States

One key difference is that US directly elects its president, while in Canada the Prime Minister is merely the leader of the party that obtains the most votes.
