The Minister of Citizen Affairs is a position on the Royal Council.


While the Government of Westarctica has often had a Royal Council ministry devoted to its citizenry, the post was usually devoted to processing citizenship applications under the banner of the Minister of Citizenship & Immigration. When the citizenship process was automated in 2019, this position was no longer required and it was removed.

In 2021, Brendan Cook, the Deputy Prime Minister requested authorization to start a council-level post responsible for encouraging interactions among the citizens of Westarctica. His request was granted and on 2 November 2021, the ministry was created as part of the 20th Anniversary Honors and Appointments list.
