About Kelvin Goertzen

Kelvin Goertzen is a lifelong resident of Steinbach and, since 2003, has had the honour of serving as the MLA for the Steinbach constituency. He was re-elected to his sixth term on October 3rd, 2023.

A graduate of the University of Manitoba, Kelvin has degrees in Economics, Commerce, and Law. Beginning his time in the Manitoba Legislature as an intern in 1996, Kelvin is the first Manitoba Legislative Intern to have ultimately served in a provincial Cabinet and become Premier.


During his time in office, Kelvin has served in many roles. In Opposition, he has served as the Official Opposition House Leader and Deputy Leader of the Progressive Conservative Party along with several critic roles.

He would later go on to serve in several senior roles after being elected to government, including Deputy Premier of Manitoba, and most recently as Minister of Justice, Attorney General, and Government House Leader. Kelvin has also served as the co-chair of the Midwest Canada- U.S. Relations Committee, the largest committee of the Midwest Legislative Committee.

In the fall of 2021, Kelvin was appointed the 23rd Premier of Manitoba following the departure of Premier Brian Pallister, becoming the first person from southeast Manitoba to have served as Premier. During that time, he also served as the Interim Leader of the Manitoba Progressive Conservative Party.

From an early age, Kelvin has been active in the community. Prior to entering elected life, he served as Vice-President of both the Steinbach Arts Council and the Steinbach Food Bank (Helping Hands), and was granted an honorary membership to the South East Rotary Club. His community and provincial service have earned him many awards including the H.O.P.E. Medal of Honour by the Lions Club of Manitoba, as well as the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal from the Governor General of Canada.

Kelvin is married to Kim, also a lifelong Steinbach resident. Their home is made complete with their son Malachi and the family dog, Reagan. They enjoy attending Winnipeg Blue Bomber games in the summer and Winnipeg Jets games in the winter.
