New Smaller Cabinet Includes Four New Faces

Premier Brad Wall has made major changes to the provincial cabinet.

“In the April election, we were fortunate that voters elected a number of very talented and capable new MLAs, creating the opportunity for renewal in our government,” Wall said. “The new cabinet will have a strong blend of experience and new faces and will serve Saskatchewan well as we work to meet the opportunities and challenges facing our province.”

Five MLAs are entering cabinet, including four who become ministers for the first time:

  • Tina Beaudry-Mellor becomes Minister of Social Services and Minister responsible for the Status of Women;
  • Dave Marit becomes Minister of Highways and Infrastructure;
  • Bronwyn Eyre becomes Minister of Advanced Education;
  • Joe Hargrave becomes Minister of Crown Investments Corporation (CIC), Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) and Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC); and
  • Ken Cheveldayoff re-enters cabinet as Minister of Parks, Culture and Sport and Minister responsible for the Public Service Commission (PSC).
