Minister of Employment and Social Development,


Love it or hate it, wrangling through the Canada Jobs Grant deal and getting provincial support was a big win for Kenney this year.

As Canada’s longest-serving minister of Citizenship and Immigration, from 2008 to 2013, Kenney was described by the National Post as “perhaps Canada’s best immigration minister ever.” Last year, he was appointed minister of Employment and Social Development, with a mandate to ensure that Canadians are well prepared to participate fully in the labour market of the future.

Kenney has been voted the “best overall” and “hardest working” MP by his colleagues in Maclean’s annual survey of parliamentarians.
