Privy Council Office
The Privy Council Office (PCO) is the hub of non-partisan, public service support to the Prime Minister and Cabinet and its decision-making structures. Led by the Clerk of the Privy Council, PCO supports the government in implementing its vision and responding effectively and quickly to issues facing the government and the country.
We are in the process of moving our services and information to Canada.ca.
Our current Privy Council Office website will remain available until the move to Canada.ca is complete.
