Nova Scotia. Executive Council Office

In 1966 the Clerk of the Executive Council (Cabinet) became a civil servant with deputy minister status. The following year the Executive Council Office was created to enable the clerk to discharge the statutory functions. The office examines submissions to Cabinet to ensure conformity with policy and legal requirements; prepares draft orders in council; registers, certifies, distributes, indexes and files orders in council; and liaises with departments, agencies, boards and commissions on matters of concern to Cabinet.
