|The Canadian Deep state|
Traditionally playing a junior role to its old colonial master the UK, which eventually was replaced by the USA, the Canadian Deep state seems to be firmly in the grip of the Supranational Deep State. Apart from deeply aligning its military and intelligence services with its southern neighbor, the main Canadian contribution to the "international community" is its large and aggressive mining companies.
- The Family Compact, a network of closely connected loyalist families dominated the legislative, bureaucratic, business, religious and judicial centres of power in Upper Canada (present-day Ontario) from the early- to mid-1800s.
- A number of members of the British Empire deep state Milner Group were active in Canada.
- The Canada/Privy Council was started in 1867. An indication of the group's importance is that multiple presidents have attended the Bilderberg and/or have had senior roles in the Canadian public political hierarchy.
1960s Regime Change
“The Civil Service is there to advise on, but not to determine policy. A minister is there to see that government policy is carried out within his department… That said, had I been returned to office in 1965, there would have been some major changes made. It became obvious as soon as we were out of office in 1963 that there were quite a number of senior people in the public service, about whom I had not known, who had simply been underground, quietly working against my government and waiting for the Liberals to return to power.”
John G. Diefenbaker 
During the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, Prime Minister Diefenbaker refused to put the Canadian military on a war footing at the behest of the American government without first consulting his cabinet. The Canadian Department of Defence essentially mutinied and mobilized anyway. 
Soon after, Diefenbaker was seen by the Americans to be equivocating on the policy of arming Bomarc missiles in Canada with nuclear warheads as well as similarly arming Canadian fighter squadrons in Europe. The Kennedy administration soon actively targeted Diefenbaker. In January of 1963, the retiring NATO supreme commander and American general gave a press conference in Ottawa where he made it know that Canada had not met its commitment to the alliance. Days later, the U.S. State Department responded to a speech Mr. Diefenbaker made in the House of Commons by issuing a press release essentially calling Diefenbaker a liar: "[the Canadian government] has not yet proposed any arrangement sufficiently practical to contribute effectively to North American defence."
Within days of the American intervention, Lester Pearson, the Nobel Peace Prize winning leader of the Liberal opposition, switched from opposing nuclear warheads to supporting them, much to the discomfort of many in the Liberal Party. Diefenbaker, faced with caucus revolts and a media maelstrom, sought an election.
Diefenbaker blamed President Kennedy: “He was out to destroy me, 100 per cent,” and included “the powerful interests on Wall Street,” for engineering a brief but intense foreign exchange crisis, The great money panic of July 18-21 1963, that forced the Diefenbaker Government to devalue the Canadian dollar just before the 1962 general election.
Lester Pearson and the Liberals received advice from Kennedy advertising gurus, and the U.S. Ambassador to Canada gave anti-Diefenbaker media briefings in the basement of the U.S. Embassy. And the Liberals succeeded in taking over the government, albeit as a minority government.
In 1964, Diefenbaker stated in parliament that as a result of the events of July 18-21, the U. S. “now has a veto with regard to the expansion of Canada’s economy, which is something not in keeping with the sovereignty of this nation.”
Defense against Help
Parts of the Canadian defense establishment created a rationale for subservience to the US, the idea of "defense against help" —that Canada’s continuing contribution to common North American “defense" dissuades the United States from offering excessive “help” in the form of regular infringements on Canadian territorial sovereignty.
ISGP's "Global Superclass" index for Canada is dominated by the banking and corporate sectors, most notably the Bronfman family and the Desmarais family. The top individuals are Conrad Black, Brian Mulroney and Peter Munk.
Canada has its own branch of the little publicized transatlantic network the Ditchley Foundation.
“You may have heard the term “deep state” in recent months, especially out of the United States. It is a powerful term, but in Canada its meaning is getting stripped. Up here, “deep state” is in danger of becoming just another term for bureaucratic inertia and a resistant civil service. That distorts the concept, so let’s take a look at this term, and an example of a deep state in Canada.
Democracy depends on a wide range of institutions: political parties; courts, police, and media; non-partisan civil servants and arms-length regulators; and universities with experts who pursue truth wherever evidence may lead. A key feature of democracy is that these institutions are genuinely independent. They are not beholden to any private interest, and are instead loyal to the public interest and obedient to the rule of law.
But what happens when public institutions lose their independence? Even more, what happens when a whole series of democratic institutions falls under the sway of one private interest? This would occur, for example, when the governing party, the opposition party, the civil service, universities and regulators all follow the lead of the same private interest.
When several key democratic institutions are captured and held by the same private interest, a “deep state” forms. A deep state is an unofficial system of government that arises separately from, but is closely connected to, the official system. It is a public-private hybrid that operates outside public view. In a modern democracy like Canada, a deep state typically comprises leading owners and executives of major private interests and their allies, together with a selection of politicians and bureaucrats tied to the success of those private interests. A successful deep state captures and harnesses the institutions of democracy for its own use.

Supranational Deep State Control
Canada appears to be under supranational deep state control. Evidence for this includes a survey by polling firm YouGov; 33% of the Canadian population were revealed to support a Canadian Parliamentary review of the 9/11 Commission Report, with 26% neither for nor against, and 19% opposed. Notwithstanding this, when such a petition was delivered by ReThink911 Canada, the Canadian government did not address this point, declaring curtly that it would "not tolerate the waste of taxpayer dollars by studying conspiracy theories".
Foreign Control of Military Forces
In 2015, Canadian military leaders discussed plans for a "binational integrated military force with the U.S., under which air, sea, land and special operations forces would be jointly deployed under unified command outside Canada." The plan was put aside, and instead refocused on improving interoperability between the forces.
Naval commander William Guy Carr gave speeches around Canada in the 1930s about clandestine control of governments. He published a series of books on the topic until his death in 1959.
