Brian William Pallister

Educator, insurance agent, MLA (1992-1995), MLA (1995-1997), MP (2001-2004), MP (2004-2005), MP (2006-2008), MLA (2012-2016), MLA (2016-present), Premier of Manitoba (2016-present).

Born on 6 July 1954, he attended the Portage Collegiate Institute. He later taught history, geography, and environmental science at William Morton Collegiate (1976-1979) then worked as a financial services consultant before going into politics. Elected to the Manitoba Legislature at a by-election in September 1992, he was re-elected at the 1995 general election, stepping down prematurely to stand as a Progressive Conservative candidate in the 1997 federal general election. Narrowly defeated by Jake Hoeppner of the Reform Party, he was elected at the 2000 general election as a member of the Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance, and was re-elected in 2004 and 2006. In 2012, he returned to provincial politics, becoming Premier of Manitoba in 2016.
