Minister Fir was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on April 16, 2019, as the MLA for Calgary-Peigan.
Like many other first-generation Canadians, Fir comes from a home that understands the meaning of hard work. Born in Cranbrook, she moved to Calgary with her family in 1985 where she saw first-hand the promise and opportunity of the Alberta economy. Fir has been active in her community since then, including her volunteer service in support of Calgary Reads.
Fir earned a Bachelor of Commerce with a concentration in Management of Organizations and Human Resources from the University of Calgary. She worked as a Human Resources Advisor in Alberta’s Oil and Gas industry for more than 19 years and has a deep knowledge of the industry, those who rely on it for jobs, and the challenges they face right now.
Tanya Fir was appointed as Alberta’s Minister of Economic Development, Trade & Tourism on April 30, 2019. She is focused on fiercely advocating for Alberta, its industry, world renowned natural beauty, and restoring it as a place that once again attracts the investment and opportunity that drew her family to the province.
