Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi was sworn in as Labour Minister this afternoon, following Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's announcement of her 27-member cabinet.

This is Naqvi’s first cabinet appointment since his election to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 2007. 

Naqvi and his family immigrated to Canada from Pakistan when he was 15. He has since graduated from McMaster University, and the University of Ottawa law school.

He began practicing law at Flavell Kubrick LLP, after being called to the Bar in 2001, where he specialized in international trade.

Ottawa-Vanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur retains her position as Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, while former Ottawa mayor Bob Chiarelli will become Ontario's new energy minister.
