Ambassador Doer assumed his responsibilities as Canada’s 23rd representative to the United States in October 2009. Prior to taking up his current position, Doer served as Premier of Manitoba for 10 years. During that time, he worked extensively with U.S. Governors to enhance Canada-U.S. cooperation on trade, agriculture, water protection, climate change, and renewable energy.

Doer won three consecutive elections as Premier of Manitoba and in 2005 was named by Business Week magazine as one of the top 20 international leaders on climate change. His government introduced balanced budgets during each of his ten years in office while reducing many taxes, including a plan to eliminate small business tax. As Premier, he led strategic investments in health care, education, and training and infrastructure.
