New British Columbia Cabinet Sworn In

On Wednesday, December 7th, 2022, British Columbia Premier, David Eby, announced his new cabinet of 23 ministers and four ministers of state at a swearing in ceremony in Victoria. 
While some of the major portfolios were retained by the existing ministers, there were a few surprises and new portfolios. Two new ministries were created, signaling Eby’s commitment to his previously announced priorities: Housing, led by Ravi Kahlon, and Emergency Management and Climate Readiness, led by Bowinn Ma. 

Former Finance Minister Selina Robinson has been moved to an updated Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills and Andrew Mercier, formerly the Parliamentary Secretary for Skills Training, is now the Minister of State for Workforce Development, a new portfolio that aligns with a major focus for HRAI.  

Anne Kang, formerly Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Training, takes over Municipal Affairs and former Minister of Municipal Affairs, Josie Osborne, will serve as Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon innovation, while George Heyman will stay on as environment minister and Harry Bains keeps his portfolio as Labour Minister. 
HRAI staff will be reviewing each Minister’s new mandate letter and will reach out to Cabinet Members in the coming days and weeks ahead.
