A message of congratulations to Stephen LeClair

I would like to offer my heartfelt congratulations to Stephen LeClair on his appointment to an important new position. Until recently, Stephen served as Yukon’s Deputy Minister of Finance. He has left the territory to take up responsibilities as Ontario’s first Financial Accountability Officer.

Though I’m disappointed to see a person of his calibre leave the Yukon government, I wish Stephen all the best in Ontario and thank him for his service here.

Stephen’s new position makes him the first provincial parliamentary budget officer in Canada. As Financial Accountability Officer, he is responsible for providing independent analysis to the legislative assembly on the state of the province's finances.

He was appointed Yukon’s deputy minister of Finance in August 2014. Prior to that, he served as assistant deputy minister of the Economics and Fiscal Policy division with the Alberta Treasury Board and Finance ministry. He also served in a number of senior roles with the N.W.T. and federal governments.

Stephen provided this message as he was leaving for his new position in Ontario:

"My short time in the territory has been wonderful and working for the Government of Yukon was all that I expected. I was privileged to work with people who take pride in the work they do. Their dedication made me proud to be a part of the Yukon government. My early departure from my position came only because I was offered a unique opportunity."

For those who had the pleasure of working with Stephen, please join with me in congratulating him on his new appointment.
