About This Quiz

The 23 Prime Ministers that Canada has had have all left their lasting legacies on the country in some way. Some did it in the form of the length of their terms, whether they were long or short, while others made huge strides in what they did while in office. Each Prime Minister had a personality that the public knew them for, just as us citizens do. Have you ever wondered which of our famous Prim Ministers you're most like?

Sir John A. MacDonald was a Father of the Confederation and the first of our long list of Prime Ministers. During his time in office, he had a lot to do to get the country going. After him came many more, who shaped our country into what it is today. In fact, we've even had a female Prime Minister by the name of Kim Campbell! Prime Ministers like Mackenzie King were known for having fascinating private lives while shying away from the public. It may seem strange for a Prime Minister not always to enjoy their work, but it can be a stressful job at times.
