Many different types of organizations have constitutions, ranging from companies, to voluntary organizations, to political parties.

Preamble to the Constitution Act, 1867 - Wikipedia

As the basic rulebook for Canadian politics, the Constitution governs several key political relations in Canadian society. First, it establishes basic principles and rules that govern the relationship between citizens and the state. In this context the state is understood as encompassing all branches (executive, legislative, and judicial) and levels (federal, provincial, territorial, and local) of government. The Constitution empowers the state (or parts of it) to deliberate, enact, and implement laws that will govern the life of citizens. At the same time, the Constitution also recognizes important citizen rights that limit how the state may exercise this power and authority.
