Institutional Functions, Programs and Activities

Elections Canada operates under a Program Alignment Architecture (PAA) that has one strategic outcome: An Accessible Electoral Framework that Canadians Trust and Use.

The PAA contains three programs that Elections Canada is committed to providing to the benefit of all Canadians: Electoral Engagement; Electoral Operations; and Regulation of Electoral Activities. A fourth program, Internal Services, provides common services and resources in support of the other programs. Each program includes diverse sub-programs.
