The Canadian Association of New York in partnership with the Province of Ontario is pleased to invite you to a luncheon presentation with the Honourable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of the Province of Ontario. Premier Wynne will deliver the 2015 economic statement on Ontario.  Finance Minister Charles Sousa will also be attending the luncheon.

 

BIOGRAPHY

As the 25th Premier of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne is changing the face of politics in Canada. Premier Wynne is the first woman to lead Canada’s largest province and was named one of CNN’s “Most Inspiring Women of 2014.”

Since taking office in February 2013, Premier Wynne has embarked on a number of bold initiatives, including the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario’s history and a groundbreaking plan to stop sexual violence and harassment.

Under Premier Wynne, Ontario also completed the single largest climate change initiative in North America — eliminating coal-fired electricity. Building on those efforts, Premier Wynne introduced a cap-and-trade system to further combat greenhouse gas pollution and she is working across borders to protect the Great Lakes.

With a population of more than 13.5 million, Ontario boasts the country’s most diverse provincial economy and is the most multicultural province in Canada. Premier Wynne is proud to showcase everything that Ontario has to offer when the province hosts the 2015 Pan Am and ParaPan Am Games this summer.

Kathleen Wynne is the country’s first openly gay premier and has lived with her partner, Jane, in North Toronto for more than 25 years. She has three adult children and three grandchildren.
