Treasury Board Secretariat

Treasury Board Secretariat

The Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) is the administrative branch of the Treasury Board of Canada. The role of the secretariat is to support the Treasury Board as a committee of ministers, and to fulfill the statutory responsibilities of a central government agency. TBS provides advice to Treasury Board ministers in the management and administration of government.

TBS functions as the government's management board, oversees the operations of the federal government as a whole, and serves as the general manager and employer of the federal Public Service. TBS is also responsible for the comptrollership function of government, providing oversight of the financial management functions in departments and agencies.

It is headed by a Secretary, Wayne G. Wouters (as of 2004), who reports to the Honourable Vic Toews, President of the Treasury Board. Pierre Poilievre is the Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Treasury Board.

TBS offices are located primarily in the L'Esplanade Laurier office complex in Ottawa, though there are several smaller offices elsewhere in Ottawa, as well as regional offices throughout Canada.
