The Queen's Privy Council for Canada (QPC) ~ français : Conseil privé de la Reine pour le Canada (CPR), sometimes called Her Majesty's Privy Council for Canada or simply the Privy Council in Canada, is the full group of personal consultants to the monarch of Canada on state and constitutional affairs, though responsible government requires the sovereign or her viceroy—the Governor General of Canada—to almost always follow only that advice tendered by the Cabinet—a committee within the Privy Council composed usually of elected Members of Parliament. Those summoned to the QPC are appointed for life by the governor general as directed by the Prime Minister of Canada, meaning that the group is composed predominantly of former cabinet ministers, with some others having been inducted as an honorary gesture. Those in the council are accorded the use of an honorific style and post-nominal letters, as well as various signifiers of precedence.

The post-nominal letters for a Privy Councillor are: PC ~ français « CP».
