Statement By Minister Lecce

June 20, 2019

Statement by the Hon. Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education:

I am humbled and energized to serve the over two million students in the province of Ontario with a singular focus on unleashing their full potential.

I'm looking forward to working with students, parents, educators and all partners in education to ensure that as our young people go through the journey of learning, it leads to a good paying job.

I will continue to fight for all students – irrespective of faith, heritage, orientation, gender or ability – to ensure they benefit from an inclusive, safe, and focused academic experience.

I want to thank Minister Thompson for her work and the Premier for his confidence.

The work starts today.
