    6.12 Jointly sponsored minutes

    Jointly sponsored Minutes require joint signatures.

    Where the administrative responsibility for an Act is shared by two or more Ministers, it is permissible for an Executive Council Minute to be jointly sponsored. The Minute cover should be initialled by the sponsoring Ministers and the Explanatory Memorandum signed by the Ministers and the respective Chief Executives. The Minute cover should only reference one sponsoring Department: the Department which submits the Minute to the Executive Council Secretariat.

    After Governor in Council approval, the Executive Council Secretariat will return the Minute to the Department which submitted the Minute and provide a copy of the approved Minute to the other sponsoring agency.

    A sample jointly sponsored Minute is at Appendix 33 (.doc, 49 KB).
