Not My Department was a Canadian television sitcom, which aired on CBC Television in 1987.[1] The show lasted only a single season.

The show, based on Charles Gordon's comedic novel The Governor General's Bunny Hop, starred Harry Ditson as Gerald Angstrum and Shelley Peterson as Margaret Simmons, civil servants in Ottawa working for the Department of Regional Incentive Targets, a government ministry whose sole job was to inherit files that other government ministries didn't want to deal with.[1] Essentially, it was an attempt to create a Canadian version of the British sitcom Yes Minister.

The cast also included Robbie O'Neill, Barry Stevens, Pierre Chagnon, Chris Wiggins, Alpha Boucher, Robert Benson, Bonnie Brooks, James Edmond and Suzanne Coy.[1]

Peterson was the wife of then-Premier of Ontario David Peterson, who made a cameo appearance in one episode of the series as a janitor.
