Canada seems undemocratic

Since this is an election year in the US, I noticed that I have never heard of a Canadian election, so I asked my dad, who studied in Canada and he said that he doesn't recall there being any, but he's sure they do.
I decided to research this myself and I discovered that the Canadian Prime Minister's term length is "At her majesty's pleasure" which seems to imply that a person can be in power for as long as the Queen wants. Lieutenant Governors and Premiers are also at the pleasure of a person above them.
Inquiring minds wish to know. Does Canada have elections? Or is it like "You're doing a crappy job so I'm replacing you" or "Keep up the good work!"
