The Queen is represented at the provincial level by Lieutenant Governors.

It should be noted that at Confederation, the Lieutenant Governors were actually representatives not of the Queen, but of the federal government through the Governor General. Over time, the role evolved to become an independent representative of the Queen, though the Governor General continues to have the power to disallow provincial legislation on the advice of the prime minister.

The Queen is not represented at the territorial level (in Canada).

There is a Commissioner appointed to administer the Government of each territory. They perform functions very close to those of a Lieutenant Governor, but rather than acting as representatives of the Queen, the Commissioners represent and executive orders from the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, and Federal Interlocutor for Métis and Non-Status Indians, presently the Honourable Chuck Strahl (the member of the House of Commons for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon).
