Victor Boudreau is New Brunswick’s Minister of Health.
Prior to the Liberals election victory in 2014, Boudreau served as interim leader of the party for two years until a leadership vote cemented Brian Gallant as the new leader. Following the election, Boudreau was appointed Health Minister.
Boudreau was first elected to the legislature in 2004, and quickly became a rising star in the party. He was named Health and Wellness Critic for the opposition under the leadership of Shawn Graham.
After Graham led the Liberals to victory in 2006, Boudreau was appointed Finance Minister. In the final year of that government, Boudreau was moved to Minister of Business New Brunswick in a Cabinet shuffle.
He was re-elected in the 2010 election, in which the Liberals were defeated, and then again in 2014.
Boudreau’s interest in politics started at a young age. He served as President of the Young Liberals and then worked for Fernand Robichaud in Ottawa.
Prior to entering provincial politics, Boudreau worked as village administrator of Cap-Pelé.
His community involvement includes work with the Shediac Lions Club, the Beauséjour Family Crisis Resource Centre, the Cap-Pelé Region Chamber of Commerce, the Cap-Pelé watershed association, and Hospice Shediac.
