Lethbridge-West MLA Greg Weadick is continuing on as Minister of Advanced Education in Alberta in Premier Alison Redford’s new cabinet. The new cabinet was sworn in at a ceremony today in Edmonton.

We are excited to continue our great working relationship with Minister Weadick and look forward to rolling up our sleeves and working on improving our system in the months to come.

Premier Redford made a strong commitment to post-secondary education over her campaign during the summer, in particular in regards to improving Alberta’s post-secondary participation rate and advancing that goal is important not only to students but to Alberta’s future.
