Biography / Administrative history
The first Minister of State for Social Development was the Hon. Jean Chrétien. Under his direction, the new "super-ministry" began to fulfil its role to ensure the formulation, development and coordination of federal government programmes affecting the social welfare of Canadians. On 10 September 1982, Senator Jacob (Jack) Austin replaced Jean Chrétien as Minister of State for Social Development. The Ministry continued under his direction until it was abolished (effective 1 September 1984) by Order-in-Council PC 3037 of 31 August 1984.
