‘Fasten your seatbelts’: Fortier’s quick rise to oversee ‘enormous’ Treasury Board amid historic spending
Treasury Board President Mona Fortier's job will be improving public service recruitment, strengthening oversight on spending and financial reporting in the government's multi-billion-dollar spending estimates, exercising due diligence with costing and approval of federal programs, increasing diversity in federal decision-making positions, and more.

She was elected in 2017, the first woman to ever win the Ottawa-Vanier riding, and was first posted to cabinet in 2019 as associate finance minister and minister for middle class prosperity, a file that no longer exists.
