Role of the Greffe

The Secretary General of the Conseil exécutif is also its Clerk. He is responsible for the Greffe, which processes draft orders-in-council that must be adopted by the Conseil des ministres. The Clerk advises on draft orders-in-council and draft regulations, and is the conservator of these documents.

As adviser, the Clerk of the Conseil exécutif ensures that draft orders-in-council and draft regulations comply with the laws and regulations in effect. He submits them to the government after coordinating their analysis, where required, and ensuring that they are properly drafted. Such coordination requires above all the cooperation of the standing ministerial committees of the Conseil exécutif and their secretariats, as well as that of the Conseil du trésor, the ministère des Finances and the ministère de la Justice. The Clerk of the Conseil exécutif also oversees the distribution and publication of orders-in-council and regulations in the Gazette officielle du Québec.

As the depository of orders-in-council and the official responsible for their custody for fifteen years, the Clerk must take the measures necessary for their conservation. He is also responsible for conserving the oaths of members of the Conseil des ministres, their declarations of interests and the instructions of the Premier.
