Acts and Regulations
The Treasury Board is a Cabinet committee of ministers that oversees the government's financial, human resources and administrative responsibilities, and establishes policies that govern each of these areas. In addition, the Prime Minister has designated the Treasury Board to act as the committee of the Queen's Privy Council with respect to the consideration and approval of regulations and most Orders in Council. The Treasury Board, as the Management Board for the government, has three principal roles:
It acts as the government's Management Office by promoting improved management performance and approving policies to support the prudent and effective management of the government's assets, financial, information and technology resources.
It acts as the government's Budget Office by examining and approving the proposed spending plans of government departments, and reviewing the development of approved programs.
It acts as the employer and People Management Office by setting people management policies and managing compensation and labour relations, including determining the terms and conditions of employment.
