Why it is ‘virtually impossible’ to abolish the monarchy in Canada

King Charles's upcoming coronation has reignited a longstanding debate in Canada. Canadians are wondering whether it makes sense for the country to be tied to the monarchy this day in age.

A 2022 poll by the Angus Reid Institute shows at least 51% of Canadians want to sever ties with the monarchy. Support for the monarchy in Canada has been declining steadily over the last decade.

But Canada’s Constitutional framework makes it incredibly difficult to sever ties with the monarchy. In fact, some experts say it’s basically “impossible” to abolish the monarchy in Canada.
