Former Premiers of Manitoba


A premier is the chief minister of a provincial government. Because of the shared framework of cabinet government, the office of provincial premier is similar to that held by Canada's prime minister. The policy direction and management of the provincial governments is visibly dominated by their premiers. A premier is in every sense the "first" minister.
