Back to the Ministry of Government Services Summary page

A number of agencies, boards and commissions associated with MGS provides oversight to ensure effective governance, accountability, and relationship management:

The Licence Appeal Tribunal hears appeals about compensation claims and licensing activities regulated under various ministries’ statutes.

The Advertising Review Board is designated as a mandatory central service for the procurement of advertising, public and media relations, and creative communications services for the OPS. This helps ensure ministries and government agencies acquire these services in a manner that is fair, open, transparent and accessible to qualified suppliers.

The Conflict of Interest Commissioner has responsibility for certain conflict of interest and political activity matters as they apply to employees of ministries and public bodies as well as to individuals appointed to public bodies. The Commissioner handles requests for advice or rulings from deputy ministers, chairs of public bodies, and other designated individuals on specific conflict of interest or political activity matters.
