The American Psychological Association Publication Manual, 6th edition, does not cover Canadian government publications.
It does include some examples from American government sources ( pp. 205-206 and 216-224).
The following examples are the Library staff's, as well as academic librarians at various Canadian colleges and universities, interpretations of APA for Canadian Government material.

The Online Writing Lab at Purdue University offers an online resource which can be used in some cases. However, it does not include everything required for citing sources in one place.
The APA citation style does not cover Canadian government sources, and has only a limited section on American government resources.
Please refer to the staff at the Library Reference Desk for clarification when citing Canadian government sources.
