The Canadian Association of New York in partnership with the Province of Manitoba and the Consulate General of Canada in New York is pleased to invite you to a luncheon presentation with the Honourable Cameron Friesen, Minister of Finance, Province of Manitoba. The Minister will be addressing the Government of Manitoba’s responsible fiscal strategy and economic measures included in Manitoba’s Budget 2018.

BIOGRAPHY

Cameron was first elected to the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba in 2011 and represents the constituency of Morden—Winkler.

 

Born and raised in southern Manitoba, Cameron received degrees from the Canadian Mennonite University and the University of British Columbia. Cameron later earned his education degree at the University of Manitoba and taught for 12 years in the public school system.

 

Currently, under Premier Brian Pallister, Cameron serves as Minister of Finance, Minister responsible for the Civil Service, and Chair of the Treasury Board. He is a member of the government’s Planning and Priorities Committee of Cabinet.

 

Cameron’s third budget, delivered on March 12, 2018, makes significant progress in reducing the deficit, provides record tax relief to Manitoba families, and continues the government’s moderate and balanced approach. Key legislation introduced within his portfolio includes requirements for balancing the budget, red tape reduction, and ensuring Manitoba’s public services are financially sustainable.

 

Cameron believes that Manitoba is on a strong path towards financial stability and economic prosperity, and the result will be a better Manitoba.

 

Cameron loves Manitoba – the people, the history, the family focus, the work ethic, and the commitment to helping others.  Cameron and his wife Shelley have two daughters and a son and continue to call the City of Morden home.
