About the Secretariat

The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) is a central agency located in the National Capital Region. It provides advice and makes recommendations to the Treasury Board committee of ministers on how the government spends money on programs and services, how it regulates and how it is managed. The Secretariat helps ensure tax dollars are spent wisely and effectively for Canadians.

Working at TBS offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the work of a central federal agency, and to be part of cultivating the federal public service as a model workplace. Named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers (2018) and National Capital Region’s Top Employers (2018), TBS provides a challenging and stimulating environment where employees have the opportunity to have a positive impact on a variety of public policy issues on a daily basis.

With high-performing teams and innovative practices, TBS professionals serve Canadians by collaborating on government-wide initiatives, driving excellence in people management and taking initiative while effectively managing risks.

TBS employees enjoy modern, light-filled workspaces located a short distance from Parliament Hill that meet the government’s Workplace 2.0 concept and have Wi-Fi and videoconferencing areas throughout to support collaboration and innovation. Employees have access to amenities such as showers, change rooms and secure bicycle storage, allowing them to commute using Ottawa’s bike path system.
