Ron Schuler


Ron Schuler was first elected as the MLA for Springfield in 1999 and re-elected in 2003 and 2007, and again in 2011 and 2016 in the redrawn constituency of St. Paul. With recent changes to Manitoba’s electoral boundaries, Ron is excited to be seeking re-election in the newly formed constituency of Springfield-Ritchot.

Ron previously served as Minister of Crown Services and, since August 2017, has served as the Minister of Infrastructure.

Ron graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in International Relations. He began his career in business as a junior executive with the T. Eaton Company. He then put his entrepreneurial skills to use as a small business owner. For many years, Ron operated Christmas Traditions, Espresso Junction Inc., and Gingerbread World Inc.

Prior to his election as an MLA, Ron served as a Trustee with the River East School Division. During his terms as a Trustee, he was Chair of the Education and Policy Committee and, in his final term, Chair of the Board. As a Trustee, Ron supported many important initiatives including technology upgrades and the expansion of the heritage language programs offered throughout the Division.

Ron is an active community volunteer and has given his time to organizations such as Big Brothers, Citizens on Patrol, the Kidney Foundation, Max Reinhardt Theatre Canada, the German Canadian Heritage Foundation and the Manitoba Inter-cultural Council.

Ron’s three children are also active in the community through their schools, youth sports, and church. Ron looks forward to continuing his service to the new Springfield-Ritchot constituency as part of a strong, united PC Team that is properly managing Manitoba’s finances, growing our economy, and improving the services we rely on.
