Adrienne Clarkson, Michaëlle Jean and Julie Payette were not elected. They were appointed to be the Canadian Governor General. Same for Kim Campbell, who was not elected, but became Prime Minister of Canada after the elected PM retired.

Prime Ministers are usually heads of government, not state. Governor Generals such as Quentin Bryce are viceroys, not heads of state
