When Premier Kathleen Wynne looks around the table during a cabinet meeting she will know she has something in common with five of her ministers – they are all U of T alumni.

The U of T alumni in cabinet with Wynne are: Associate Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Dipika Damerla; Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure Brad Duguid; Associate Minister of Finance Mitzie Hunter, who is responsible for the proposed Ontario Retirement Pension Plan; Minister of Community and Social Services Helena Jaczek and Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca.

They are part of a group of 15 U of T alumni across Ontario elected on June 12, including 11 Liberals, three Conservatives and one NDPer – Cheri DiNovo in Parkdale-High Park.
