Does the Queen control Canada?

Queen Elizabeth II is the Monarch of Canada, which operates courtesy of the Canadian Parliament and Canada's governmental officers.

Properly, according to Wikipedia:

"The monarchy of Canada is the core of both Canada's federalism and its Westminster-style parliamentary democracy, being the foundation of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Canadian government and each provincial government."

----------

Practically from experience:

Not at all. The role of the Queen is purely ceremonial and represented by the Governor General, another completely ceremonial role. The GG is selected by the Prime Minister who is the leader of the political party with the most seats in the house. Canadians get to vote on the people and party that fills those seats.

If the Queen or GG was to even make a comment about Canadian politics it would create a scandal. If they were to take any political action at all, even that which appears to be allowed, it would create a Constitutional Crisis and backlash that would likely see such ceremonial roles ended in Canada.

Canada does not have a Queen or a monarch of any kind except in a ceremonial role to have consistency in our political systems.

Note from a pedant, with reference to some alternate wordings of this question:

The title Queen (or King) of England has not existed for over 300 years.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

However, the Queen's Official Birthday, also known as "the Queen's Birthday" is the day on which the birthday of the monarch of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms is officially celebrated.

This varies from country to country and is rarely the actual day of the current monarch's birthday. Most Commonwealth realms release a Birthday Honours List on the official birthday.

Also in the UK the Monarchs Official Birthday is celebrated on 1st, 2nd, or (rarely) 3rd Saturday in June with a Parade which includes Trooping the colour ceremony.
Queen Elizabeth II is aged 87 years. She was born on April 21, 1926.

Where does Queen Elizabeth II live?

Most of the time, Queen Elizabeth II and her consort, Prince Philip, live at Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

She also often resides at Buckingham Palace in London, which is her official residence, and where her principal offices are maintained. She sometimes lives at her other private residences, Sandringham House in Norfolk and Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

The monarch also maintains official residences at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh and Hillsborough Castle in County Down, Northern Ireland. She rarely stays at Holyrood, however (generally only if she has business at the Scottish Parliament), and Hillsborough Castle is primarily used by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

Sandringham House in Norfolk and Balmoral Castle in Scotland, unlike the official residences, are personal possessions and ownership is not a consequence of being monarch.
