The period cannot exceed 5 years, but the Prime Minister can at any time ask the Governor to dissolve Parliament and re-elect a new lower house and government. If the Prime Minister and Cabinet do not have the trust of the House of Commons, they will resign to the Governor.
The ruling party has more than 50% of the seats in the lower house, and the prime minister and cabinet are the majority government.

Duties and powers of Canadian PM

The Canadian Prime Minister has great power in the lower house of parliament. For example, in terms of diplomacy, the President of the United States does not have as much power as the Prime Minister of Canada. The power of the US government to pass international treaties belongs to the US Senate. Domestically, members of the U.S. President's cabinet are required to vote in the House of Commons. Moreover, the United States has no party discipline, so the president cannot control any voting by fellow members.
The Prime Minister of Canada has government appointment powers, such as the Governor of Canada, members of the Cabinet, ambassadors, members of the Upper House of Parliament, the chairman of Canadian state-owned enterprises, Canada Post, a judge of the Canadian Rail Supreme Court, and agencies of the Canadian Federal Government.
