Ministerial and Governor in Council appointments
Through Ministerial and Governor in Council appointments, Canadians are able to play a fundamental role in our democracy by serving on commissions, boards, Crown corporations, agencies, and tribunals across the country.
Governor in Council appointments
Governor in Council appointments are made by the Governor General, on the advice of the Queen's Privy Council of Canada (Cabinet). The responsibilities of Governor in Council appointees range from making quasi-judicial decisions, to providing advice and recommendations on socio-economic development issues, to managing Crown corporations.
Ministerial appointments are made by the Minister of Canadian Heritage, as directed by the Government of Canada, to ensure a transparent and merit-based appointment process, employment equity and regional diversity.
