Mapping Canada-OECD Interaction by Public Management Subject

Subject-matter responsibilities of CanadaOECD3Canadian government organizations and their OECD liaison offices

This site indicates where the responsibilities for specific public policy and management subjects lie in the Government of Canada, and how they related to the work in those subjects by the OECD. Where a Canadian representative is identified as chair, vice-chair or bureau member of an OECD body in the Directory of Bodies of the OECD 2012, the representative’s departmental position is noted. In those departments where an organizational unit exists to coordinate international relations it has been identified. Many entries are marked “to be confirmed” (TBC) in forthcoming consultations, including with four units that provide overviews of various parts of the Canadian government relationships with the OECD: OECD Unit, International Economic Relations and Summit Division, Foreign Affairs and International Trade; Machinery of Government in the Privy Council Office; Priorities and Planning in the Treasury Board Secretariat and Permanent Delegation of Canada to the OECD. Note that the latter site also provides useful links to other countries’ Permanent Delegations to the OECD. Also, note that the OECD website provides “country views” that display all recent material on that country (e.g., see Canada).
