Quick Facts

  • Parliamentary secretaries are chosen by the Prime Minister to assist ministers.
  • The responsibilities of parliamentary secretaries generally fall into two broad categories: House of Commons business and department-related duties.
  • Parliamentary secretaries are not members of Cabinet and do not play a formal role in the Cabinet decision-making process. They support their ministers, but overall responsibility and accountability remains with the minister.
