In Canada from 1993 to 2003 and again from 2007 to 2008, Secretary of State was a title given to junior Ministers of State in the Government of Canada that sat outside Cabinet. Because it was a position that was assigned to assist Cabinet ministers, a Secretary of State was legally a Minister of State; the distinction is that, unlike a minister, a secretary is not a full cabinet portfolio itself and thus not considered a member of Cabinet. (They were hence considered junior to Ministers of State.) The Secretary of State (Training and Youth), for instance, would assist the Minister for Human Resources and Development. This usage is opposite to that in the United Kingdom, where junior Ministers generally report to more senior Secretaries of State. Secretaries of State were, however, members
