Released on November 9, 2020
Premier Scott Moe announced a number of changes to the provincial cabinet after receiving a renewed majority mandate in Saskatchewan’s 29th general election. The new cabinet was sworn-in by Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan Russ Mirasty.
“It is an honour to put in place a new cabinet to guide a government with a strong, new mandate from the people of Saskatchewan,” Moe said. “Our cabinet will continue the crucial work of building a strong Saskatchewan, work that is even more important as we continue the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and manage Saskatchewan’s economic recovery.”
Donna Harpauer becomes Deputy Premier
Donna Harpauer will become Saskatchewan’s Deputy Premier. Harpauer has served in every cabinet since the election of the current government in 2007 and will be the first woman to hold the role in Saskatchewan in more than 30 years.
“Donna Harpauer is one of the longest-serving cabinet ministers in the nation and without a doubt among the most capable and hard-working ministers in Canada,” Moe said. “I am confident that Deputy Premier Harpauer’s depth of experience will be a tremendous asset, and I look forward to working closely with her as we work toward a strong economic recovery and balancing the provincial budget by 2024.”
Harpauer also retains the portfolio of Minister of Finance, a role she has held since 2017.
Four other MLAs retain their current cabinet portfolios:
Nine MLAs remain in cabinet with new cabinet portfolios:
Three MLAs are entering cabinet:
“As a cabinet, we are taking up our duties during an uncertain time in this province,” Moe said. “But there is every reason to be optimistic as we work toward building a strong, vibrant, growing Saskatchewan.”
The size of cabinet remains unchanged at 18, including the Premier.
Due to personal circumstances, Christine Tell was unable to attend the swearing-in ceremony and will be sworn in to her additional cabinet responsibility in the coming days.

The Legislative Secretary to the Premier/ Provincial Secretary will receive the full remuneration amount designated for legislative secretaries.
