unsure what I need to do

I have a Canon PowerShot and I am wondering how I can make photos where one subject in the foreground is very focused while the background is somewhat blurred?

Does that camera have a manual mode or aperture mode? If so get to the lowest (smallest) aperture, adjust for correct exposure and you should be good!
