2019-06-20 2:50:20 PM


Ontario Premier Doug Ford today shuffled his cabinet – a move that has impacted several high-profile ministers. The move saw all but seven ministers move out of their positions and saw Ford's cabinet grow from 21 to 28 total ministers and associate ministers.

Below is a list of Premier Ford’s new cabinet ministers:

  • Rod Phillips, Minister of Finance

    • Former Minister of Environment, Conservation, and Parks 

  • Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation, and Trade 

    • Former Minister of Finance 

  • Doug Downey, Ontario Attorney General

  • Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation and Francophone Affairs

    • Former Attorney General 

  • Laurie Scott, Minister of Infrastructure 

    • Former Minister of Labour 

  • Lisa Thompson, Minister of Government and Consumer Services

    • Former Minister of Education 

  • Jeff Yurek, Minister of Environment, Conservation, and Parks 

    • Former Minister of Transportation 

  • Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education 

  • Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour

    • Former Minister of Infrastructure 

  • Lisa Macleod, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sports 

    • Former Minister of Children, Community, and Social Services 

  • Todd Smith, Minister of Children, Youth, Community and Social Services 

  • Merrilee Fullerton, Minister of Long-Term Care

    • Former Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities 

  • Ross Romano, Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities 

Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Steve Clark, and Health Minister, Christine Elliott, remain in their cabinet positions.  

This cabinet move is in the midst of the Ford government’s low polling numbers and controversies on a number of important policy files, several of which will impact Ontario’s local governments. 

AMCTO looks forward to working with the newly sworn in Ministers and will soon reach out to the Ministers carrying the association’s files for briefings.
