Former Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall starting a new job in Calgary
Former Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall is going back to work, three months after stepping down from office.
Wall will be working as a special adviser for business law firm Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP, as well as its clients.
In a statement, the firm says Wall has demonstrated a consistent ability to bring political and business leaders together and implemented creative ways to bolster economic growth.
“Some have called Brad one of Canada’s great leaders. We agree with that assessment,” Osler managing partner and chief executive Doug Bryce said.
“We are excited to be able to offer our clients his strategic insights, particularly in the energy and agri-food businesses where Brad has exceptional understanding of the inextricable links among the political, business and trade spheres.”
Osler is a Toronto-based firm, and Wall will be working out of their Calgary office.
Wall made a point of trying to keep people from Saskatchewan instead of moving to Alberta while in office. Despite his new job being Calgary-based, it appears the former premier will still be calling Swift Current home.
“Our clients need passionate advocates who are dedicated to effecting a national energy policy that supports their long-term, capital intensive projects,” Osler’s energy/regulatory industry leader said.
“Brad is best known for taking an open door approach to identifying new opportunities and creating trusted relationships that have promoted his province on a global stage. And now our clients and our people will get the benefit of that strategic insight and approach.”
