Margaret McCuaig-Boyd (born 1952 or 1953) is a Canadian politician who was elected in the Alberta general election, 2015 to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta representing the electoral district of Dunvegan-Central Peace-Notley. She is currently Minister of Energy in Rachel Notley's NDP government.
Born in Calgary, McCuaig-Boyd holds a master's degree in Education Administration and Leadership, and served as Vice-President of the Fairview Campus of Grande Prairie Regional College from 2009 to 2013. She had experience working with the energy industry in that capacity, seeing that students were trained to work in it.
Prior to running in the 2015 election, McCuaig-Boyd was semi-retired and ran a consulting company.
During the campaign, she advocated for a progressive tax and less reliance in the province on oil and gas money. A main reason for appointment to the Energy portfolio may be her background in northern Alberta, where it is a vital industry.
