Pat Pimm named B.C. Minister of Agriculture

“My new team has the experience and the fresh perspectives that government needs, representing all regions of the province and united by a common commitment to work on behalf of every British Columbian,” she said. “Together, we have the opportunity and obligation to grow the economy, control spending, and put B.C. firmly on track to a debt-free future.” 

As Minister of Agriculture, Pimm will work to make sure British Columbians buy local agri-food products from the province, and work to ensure B.C. takes advantage of market opportunities in Asia. He will also be tasked with creating new opportunities to market B.C. wine in other provinces across Canada. 

Pimm has previously served as Parliamentary Secretary for the Northeast and has served as chair of the Northern Caucus and two Select Standing Committees, including Aboriginal Affairs and Finance and Government Services, as well as served as a member of Treasury Board. 

He will be formally sworn in on Monday, June 10, at Government House by Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon.
