Best Answer

Her Majesty is also the Queen of Canada.

The Queen is the monarch of sixteen Realms of the Commonwealth, and in each realm Her Majesty's role is as a separate head of State. Canadians celebrate the Queen's birthday because Her Majesty is the Canadian head of State, and Canadian Queen.


P.S. The birthday we celebrate is that of Queen Victoria, not Queen Elizabeth.
