Please help Identify- Toronto, July 11 - 9mm

Found this on my driveway. At first, wasn't even sure it was an ant, but looking at the closeup pictures, it appears to be. It seems an odd shape to be a worker, which makes me suspect it is a queen? It almost looks like there is a fungus growing on her.

Can anyone identify what it is?

Thanks,

If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Ah, thanks Batspiderfish. That's a shame, I don't have any workers for her :( I'll offer her to my fellow Toronto ant keepers in case anyone can help her.
