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.

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.
