Gerry Ritz was appointed Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food in August 2007, after serving as Secretary of State for Small Business and Tourism. He was first elected to the House of Commons in 1997 and also represents his native Saskatchewan as Regional Minister.

Over his six years as Agriculture Minister he has led over 30 trade missions to open and expand international markets for Canadian farmers and food processors, helping Canadian agricultural and food exports hit all-time highs. The Minister has been recognized with a number of industry awards for his work in restoring and expanding Canadian beef and pork to key markets around the world. He also works closely with industry, academia and other levels of government here at home to invest in science and innovation. These investments help create new economic opportunities for Canada's farmers and agriculture businesses.

To allow Canada’s agriculture and food industry to capture new opportunities in the growing global marketplace, in 2013 Minister Ritz launched Growing Forward 2, a $3- billion, five-year framework driving proactive initiatives around market development, innovation and competitiveness.
