Brad Duguid was appointed Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities in February 2013. Prior to that, he served as Ontario’s Minister of Economic Development and Innovation, during which time he focused on creating jobs, promoting Ontario as a smart place to invest, building a culture of entrepreneurship and growing a strong, innovative economy.
A proud achievement in his role as Minister and Economic Development was the ushering in of Bill 11 (Attracting Investment and Creating Jobs Act 2012), a marquee piece of job creation legislation. Bill 11 saw the establishment of the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund and made permanent the Eastern Ontario Development Fund.
Previously, as Ontario’s Minister of Energy, Brad Duguid launched Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan – an ambitious plan that builds on Ontario’s commitment to clean energy – and the cleaner air, jobs and economic growth associated with it.
As Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, Minister Duguid worked at building relationships and launched PLAY – a program for aboriginal youth using participation in sports and activities to teach life-skills.
Brad Duguid’s involvement in politics began over 25 years ago while working at Queen’s Park and on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
