The Treasury Board is the Government of Canada's only statutory Cabinet committee and is responsible for the federal civil service and much of the operation of the Canadian government. It was established in 1867 and given statutory powers in 1869. Among its specific duties are negotiating labour agreements with the public service unions and serving as Comptroller General. It is headed by the President of the Treasury Board and assisted by the Treasury Board Secretariat. It is officially a committee of the Privy Council. Its role in government makes it far more powerful than most Cabinet committees as it is responsible for "accountability and ethics, financial, personnel and administrative management, comptrollership, approving regulations and most Orders-in-Council."
