Cameron Friesen


Cameron was first elected to the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba in 2011 as the MLA for Morden- Winkler, and was re-elected in 2016. Cameron previously served as Minister of Finance and, in 2018, he was appointed as Minister of Health, Seniors and Active Living.

Cameron’s third budget, delivered on March 12th, 2018, made significant progress in reducing the deficit, provides record tax relief to Manitoba families, and continues the government’s moderate and balanced approach. Key legislation introduced within his portfolio includes requirements for balancing the budget, red tape reduction, and ensuring Manitoba’s public services are financially sustainable.

As Minister of Health, Seniors and Active Living, Cameron is leading the Progressive Conservative government’s efforts to undo the damage done under the NDP and deliver better healthcare, sooner for all Manitobans.

Cameron believes that Manitoba is on a strong path towards financial stability, economic prosperity, and better front line services - and the result will be a better Manitoba.

Cameron loves Manitoba – the people, the history, the family focus, the work ethic, and the commitment to helping others.

Cameron and his wife Shelley have two daughters and a son and continue to call the City of Morden home.
