Secrétariat du Comité ministériel du développement social, éducatif et culturel

The Comité ministériel du développement social, éducatif et culturel (CMDSEC) is a permanent ministerial committee that makes recommendations to Cabinet on matters pertaining to its sectors of activity. The sectors in question are health and social services, education, immigration, income security, employment and manpower, labour, support for families and seniors, culture, public security, justice, the Aboriginal peoples, the francophonie, and intergovernmental relations.

To fulfil its mandate, the CMDSEC receives support from the Secrétariat
du comité ministerial du développement social, éducatif et culturel, which provides its members with multisectoral information that the questions submitted to them require. More specifically, the Secretariat offers strategic support to the members of the CMDSEC through the production of advisory opinions and analyses accompanied by recommendations. To this end, the Secretariat :

  • ensures that all of the government departments engaged in decision-making are consulted;
  • ensures links with the government departments concerned in order to propose concerted initiatives and solutions that reflect government policy directions;
  • provides logistical support (technical and administrative) through the organization of committee meetings and by ensuring that the committees’ deliberations progress smoothly.

The role of the Secrétariat du comité ministerial du développement social, éducatif et culturel thus supports the government’s decision-making process.
