On November 10, 2021, join PAAC Ontario for a Members-only fireside chat with the Hon. Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training & Skills Development.

Minister McNaughton’s portfolio spans across all sectors of employment in our province. This discussion will be an opportunity for PAAC Ontario members to virtually gather and hear from the Minister about the work he is doing on the Labour, Training & Skills Development file. Members will also learn more about the government’s priorities on labour and skilled trade issues, and what it means for your organization and/or clients.

PAAC Members will have the opportunity to ask questions during the event. If you would like to submit questions in advance, please submit to Sarah Letersky prior to the session.

Hon. Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training & Skills Development.

McNaughton is serving the Government of Ontario as Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development. He is a Progressive Conservative Member of the Legislative Assembly who is currently in his third term representing the riding Lambton—Kent—Middlesex.

Monte McNaughton was elected to the provincial legislature in 2011 and served in numerous critic positions, most notably as Official Opposition Critic for Economic Development. He also chaired the Standing Committee on Legislative Affairs.

Monte took the oath of office as Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure in June 2018. As Minister he embarked on an ambitious consultation across Ontario on previously neglected infrastructure needs.   Monte introduced legislation to expand natural gas availability into rural parts of the province and he tabled a plan to deliver high-speed internet to poorly serviced parts of the province. In 2018 he announced an investment to renovate the aging Massey Hall, Canada’s most renowned concert hall.

In June 2019 Monte was appointed Minister of Labour.  He has since opened a new dialogue with Ontario’s labour partners. This has included meeting with more than 150 labour leaders in his first four months as minister. In October 2019 his portfolio was expanded to include Training and Skills Development.

Monte and his wife Kate and their daughter, Annie, live in Mt. Brydges, Ontario.
