Honourable Joyce Murray
Minister of Digital Government
Government of Canada
Following a highly successful 25-year career building an international reforestation company and 4 years in the provincial cabinet of the B.C. government, the Honourable Joyce Murray was appointed President of the Treasury Board and Minister of Digital Government on March 18, 2019.
The Member of Parliament for Vancouver Quadra since 2008, Joyce served as the Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Treasury Board following the 2015 general election. In this position, she championed and helped lead the development of the Centre for Greening Government. Making federal government operations more environmentally friendly and efficient was a natural project for Joyce, whose entrepreneurial spirit was reinforced by building a company that has planted almost 1.5 billion trees, more than 500,000 of which she planted herself.
She received the Simon Fraser University Dean’s Medal as the top MBA graduate in 1992, was the chair of the board at Brinkman and Associates Reforestation, and served as British Columbia’s Environment Minister and Minister of Management Services from 2001 to 2005.
Joyce Murray has always been a thought-leader, driving progressive new policies in government. Whether advocating for strong, smart environmental measures or being an early advocate of the legalization and regulation of cannabis, Joyce’s ability to envision and deliver on bold new ideas comes from her depth of experience in politics and business.
She is passionate about investing in a fairer, greener economy that empowers future generations, and confident that digital innovation will offer important opportunities for improving services to Canadians.
