This includes establishing policies and services that:

  • Promote high-quality Governor-in-Council appointments
  • Facilitate the recruitment and retention of senior personnel
  • Plan for future public service leadership needs
  • Ensure the leadership development of senior public servants (deputy ministers, heads of agencies, etc.)
The secretariat also provides advice and support to the Prime Minister's Advisory Committee on the Public Service.
