President of The Queen's Privy Council for Canada
() is nominally in charge of the
Privy Council Office
. The President of the Privy Council also has the largely ceremonial duty of presiding over meetings of the
Queen's Privy Council for Canada
, a body which only convenes in full for affairs of state such as the accession of a new
or the marriage of the
Prince of Wales
to the Throne (see
Monarchy in Canada
). Accordingly the last time the President of the Privy Council had to preside over a meeting of the Privy Council was in 1981 on the occasion of
HRH The Prince of Wales'
Lady Diana Spencer
. It is the equivalent of the office of
Lord President of the Council
the position was synonymous with that of
Government House Leader
. In 1989 the Government House Leader became a separate position and the President of the Privy Council became a largely honorary title (not unlike that of
Deputy Prime Minister of Canada
) given to a senior minister in addition to other portfolios. From 1993 to present, with the exception of a brief period from December 12, 2003 to July 19, 2004, it has been held by whoever holds the portfolio of
Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs
. In the past decade the position has generally been seen to be the closest thing to a
posting within the Cabinet.
