Minister McIver was first elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on April 23, 2012 as the MLA for Calgary-Hays. He was re-elected on May 5, 2015, and again on April 16, 2019. Previously, McIver has served Albertans as Minister of Transportation, Infrastructure, and Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour.
A proud husband and father, McIver served three terms on Calgary’s City Council, bringing his experience as a business owner and family man to offer a common-sense, fiscally-responsible viewpoint to Council.
Outside his roles in elected politics, Ric has been passionate about helping Calgarians and Albertans by listening, learning and taking sensible actions. He served on the Police Commission and as chair of the Calgary Housing Company while on Council and is a 12-year volunteer with the Calgary Stampede and supports a variety of charitable causes. His wife Christine is the founder and CEO of the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta.
Ric McIver was appointed as Alberta’s Transportation Minister on April 30, 2019. McIver is uniquely positioned, having previously served in this role, during which time he negotiated the agreement with the Tsuu T’ina Nation on the completion of the southwest portion of Calgary’s Ring Road. He will bring his experience to his portfolio as he works to to get Alberta back on track and return it to a place of opportunity for all our children and grandchildren.
