The Secretariat is a micro-organization comprised of 10 full-time equivalents. The organization is not involved in the development of programs or policies.

|Human resources||Not applicable
Over the course of the 2018-19 fiscal year, the Secretariat finalized its recruitment activities with a total staff complement of 10 full-time equivalents (FTE). While no single FTE was identified as a dedicated resource for GBA+ activities, all employees completed the Women and Gender Equality Canada’s online Gender-based Analysis Plus training module.
As part of its recruitment activities, the Secretariat hired a diverse group of employees with the appropriate mix of experience, research, and analytical skills to fulfill the organization’s responsibilities. This breadth of experience and competencies provides the Committee with high quality, non-partisan advice and support.
|Major initiatives: results achieved||In the fall of 2018, the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians initiated a review of diversity and inclusion in Canada’s security and intelligence community. This review examines the degree of representation of designated groups (women, Aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minority groups) within organizations in the security and intelligence community. It also considers the goals, initiatives, programs and measures that departments and agencies have taken to address diversity and inclusion. The final report is included in the Committee’s 2019 Annual Report, which will be tabled in Parliament in 2020.|
