This release was issued under a previous government.

Albertans have chosen a strong, stable majority government that will put the priorities of Albertans first – a government that shares in the very same values that built this province and our prosperity.

“Today we open a new chapter in the story of Alberta. From our earliest days, Albertans have worked as hard as anyone to forge a brighter future. People from all walks of life and from every part of the world, have joined together on a common journey. And on that journey we’ve been guided by enduring values.  Albertans are hard-working. We are entrepreneurial. And we are relentlessly optimistic. We believe that tomorrow can be a better day. And that we must work hard to make it happen. That’s who we are as Albertans.”

Rachel Notley, Premier

The new Cabinet is lean and efficient, and is firmly focused on solving the challenges that face Alberta. The newly sworn-in Ministers will partner with Alberta’s job creators – in energy, forestry, agriculture, high-tech, tourism and small business – to grow and diversify our economy.

The new Cabinet will focus on the priorities of Albertans:

  • to give our children the best chance to succeed and get the right start in school;
  • to protect and strengthen public health care, so it’s there when families need it;
  • to restore trust and integrity in government – a government that belongs to Albertans; and
  • to help build a more prosperous, a more caring, and a more hopeful province for every Albertan.

“On this historic day, we are, once again, joining together in pursuit of our common dream – the same dream that has inspired generations of Albertans. It’s a dream founded on the idea that change is possible – and that a better future awaits. It is springtime in Alberta, and a fresh wind is blowing. To harness its potential, the hard work begins today.”
