Biography
Doug Currie was elected as Liberal MLA (Charlottetown –Parkdale) on May 28th, 2007. He was appointed Minister of Health and Wellness and Minister Responsible for Aboriginal Affairs on Oct. 18, 2011.

As Health Minister, Currie helped establish the Integrated Health System Project, which focused on operational improvements and service realignment to improve health services for Islanders. The Government’s vision of One Island Future – One Island Health System guided this project.

Most recently, Currie served as Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development and Attorney General from January 2010 until spring 2011.

Under Currie’s leadership, the Prince Edward Island education system saw the amalgamation of full-day, publically funded kindergarten into the public school system and the transition from the traditional early childhood care model to an early childhood learning model for children aged 0-4.

Currie grew up in District 11 Charlottetown – Parkdale and has spent most of his life living and working in his district. He holds a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education from the University of Prince Edward Island and a Master of Education degree from the University of New Brunswick.

Before his life in politics, he worked as principal at Birchwood Intermediate School. He lives in Charlottetown with his two daughters.
