History

The position was created as a ministerial position in the Canadian Cabinet in 1966 when the Treasury Board became a full-fledged department. From 1867 to 1966 the Treasury Board had been part of the Department of Finance.

Technically, the Treasury Board is a Cabinet committee of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada. It is responsible for managing the government's fiscal and administrative responsibilities including management of the civil service and oversight of expenditures.
