Doug Schweitzer

About Doug

Minister Schweitzer was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on April 16, 2019, as the MLA for Calgary-Elbow.

A dedicated husband, father of two young girls and a long-serving community volunteer, Schweitzer has a strong record of public service, including previously raising funds for military families and serving as Vice Chair of the Calgary Drug Treatment Court. He is passionate about restoring Alberta’s promise – an Alberta in which, no matter where you came from, if you worked hard, you could succeed.

Schweitzer was a partner at a leading Alberta law firm as a restructuring and bankruptcy lawyer. This experience gave him a first-hand view of the staggering impacts of failed policies that have led to job losses, economic stagnation and a loss of hope.

Doug Schweitzer was appointed as Alberta’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General on April 30, 2019. He is committed to working with Alberta’s prosecutors, police and justice system to improve public safety, address rural crime, and make Alberta a leader in combating human trafficking.

Schweitzer’s extensive legal experience make him uniquely positioned to get to work on day one and deliver results for Albertans.
