Canada's head of Government is the prime minister.The Prime Minister.Their are ceremonial heads including the Governor General and the Queen of Canada.
The Queen is Head of State, and therefore ruler of Canada. The Prime Minister is Head of Government, which is Queen's method of ruling, and is answerable to the Queen. In practice, she will only intervene if there is a constitutional crisis and allows Canada autonomy.
Her Majesty the Queen of Canada is the head of State. Executive government and authority is vested in the Queen by the Canadian constitution. The Queen is represented by the Governor General, a viceroy/vicereign appointed by the Queen on the advice of the Canadian prime minister. All decisions of the Government of Canada, bills passed by Parliament, and judicial decisions are given force by the Queen's authority (as the Queen-in-Council, the Queen-in-Parliament and the Queen on the Bench).The prime minister is the head of Government. He advises the Governor General (and on occasions the Queen) on the exercise of executive power and authority. The vast majority of executive acts performed by the Queen, or the Governor General, are done so on the constitutional "advice" of the prime minister or other ministers who are accountable to the House of Commons.So, though the Queen reigns as sovereign, most decisions rest with the prime minister.
The Governor General of Canada is appointed by Her Majesty the Queen, on the personal recommendation of the Prime Minister of Canada. There is currently no formal process by which the Prime Minister receives external advice, nor by which the choice of the Prime Minister is vetted.
The power to appoint the prime minister of Canada rests with Her Majesty the Queen of Canada. However, many of the Queen's executive functions (the appointments of prime ministers included) are exercised by Her Majesty's representative, the Governor General of Canada.

Canada is led by a Prime Minister, with a Queen or King as Head of State, but there is not really a ruler of Canada.
Queen Elizabeth II is also queen of Canada. A monarchy has a monarch (king or queen) and a republic has a president. In a Constitutional Monarchy, the monarch takes no part in the day to day running of the country and has a Prime Minister to fulfil that role.
