Secretary of State (Science, Research and Development)


Secretary of State (Science, Research and Development)

The Secretary of State for Science, Research and Development is a former federal government position in Canada. It was not a full cabinet portfolio, but was instead affiliated with Industry Canada, overseen by the Minister of Industry. The ministers who held this position were, in effect, policy assistants to the Industry Minister.

The position was established by incoming Prime Minister Jean Chrétien in the aftermath of the 1993 federal election, and was discontinued when Paul Martin succeeded Chrétien in 2003.
