Brad Wall

14th Premier of Saskatchewan

Brad Wall served as the 14th Premier of Saskatchewan from 2007 to 2018 before retiring from public life. He was first elected to the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly in 1999.

Under a decade of Wall’s Premiership, the employment sector grew by 60,000 new jobs, and provincial population growth reached its all-time high with more than 160,000 new citizens being welcomed into Saskatchewan. The Wall government’s growth plan reformed labour legislation and regulatory environments to ensure fairness, sustainability, and economic competitiveness.

During Wall’s tenure as Saskatchewan’s leader, his government’s  accomplishments include record-breaking public investment in provincial infrastructure through direct provincial and municipal funding of roads, sewers, highways, schools, hospitals, long term care facilities, and the new Mosaic Stadium. Additionally, with Wall at the helm, Saskatchewan saw unprecedented reductions in income and small business taxes, and reduced its operating debt by almost $1 billion earning its first ever AAA credit rating which it retains to this day. Wall’s last budget made the difficult choice to reduce Saskatchewan’s financial dependence on resource revenue and chart a course back to a balanced budget,  tabled this year in the Legislature. 

Since his departure from public life, Wall keeps himself busy operating his own consulting business that spans strategic, government relations and communications advice as well as a very small foray into the cattle business with his son.  He is also a special advisor to the national law firm Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt LLP.  He is an itinerant columnist for the BOE Report and the National Post, and was recently named to the Advisory Board of the Canadian Global Affairs Institute.  

Wall and his wife, Tami, still reside in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.  They have three grown children; Megan, Colter and Faith. 

Rumors abound as to whether Wall does, or does not, own Waylon Jennings 1973 Cadillac Eldorado.
