Secretariat

Role of the Secretariat

The Secretariat is headed by an Executive Director and its activities are carried out by professional staff from Canada, Mexico and the United States. Each year, the Secretariat submits the Commission’s program and budget to the Council for approval. The Secretariat also has special responsibilities to consider submissions from any non-governmental organization or citizen that a party is failing to effectively enforce its environmental law.
