Premier Scott Moe announced changes to his cabinet including new Ministers of Government Relations, Highways and Infrastructure, and Rural and Remote Health. Premier Moe also announced a new cabinet responsibility for seniors held by the Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health, and shifted cabinet responsibilities for the Water Security Agency and the Provincial Capital Commission.
Three cabinet ministers change portfolios:
- Lori Carr becomes Minister of Government Relations, Minister Responsible for First Nations, Métis and Northern Affairs, and Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission. Carr previously served as Minister of Highways and Infrastructure.
- Greg Ottenbreit becomes Minister of Highways and Infrastructure, and Minister Responsible for the Water Security Agency. Ottenbreit previously served as Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health.
- Warren Kaeding becomes Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health. Kaeding also becomes Minister Responsible for Seniors, a new cabinet responsibility that ensures Saskatchewan seniors have a dedicated voice at the cabinet table. Kaeding previously served as Minister of Government Relations.
“I am confident that Ministers Carr, Ottenbreit, and Kaeding will bring strong leadership to their new responsibilities as our government serves the people of our province and works to strengthen Saskatchewan,” Moe said.
Several changes were made to the roster of legislative secretaries as well, including:
- Lyle Stewart becomes Legislative Secretary to the Minister Responsible for the Water Security Agency;
- Larry Doke becomes Legislative Secretary to the Minister Responsible for SaskPower.
“Our cabinet and caucus will continue to deliver on the priorities of our constituents while continuing consultations as we renew our government’s plan for growth as we look ahead to 2030.”
