I am new to QGIS. I need to modify a shapefile so I can add a circle in a Canadian province to be used for Tableau afterwards.

I tried to use QGIS to modify the shapefile. I have created a new layer and I have merged it with the one containing the Canadian province boundaries. The result is as shown in the screencap below. Instead of this result, I would like the circle to act as a province in itself so I don't have the overlapping of the province and the circle. Can this be achieved when merging 2 layers?

    Sounds like a basic Union operation would suffice. Instead of working against topology, you should work with it. – Vince May 20 '19 at 0:14
