Andrew Barr

As a social progressive and economic reformer, Andrew has led a positive agenda for Canberra since being elected ACT Chief Minister in 2014.

Canberra is Australia’s knowledge capital, playing to its strengths and is opening up its economy to drive job creation in emerging industries. From nation-leading tax reform to city-shaping infrastructure and progressive whole-of-government economic policies, Canberra is thriving.

During Andrew’s time as ACT Chief Minister, Canberra has been ranked by the OECD as the best city in the world to live and by Lonely Planet as one of the best cities in the world to visit.

Andrew has lived in Canberra for more than forty years and attended Holt Preschool, Turner Primary, Lyneham High and Lake Ginninderra College before studying a Bachelor of Arts (Policy Studies) at the Australian National University majoring in economics and political science.

He was elected to the ACT Legislative Assembly in 2006 and has served in a number of Ministerial portfolios including planning, education, housing, community services and sport. He is Australia’s longest-serving Tourism Minister and is also the ACT Treasurer and Minister for Economic Development.

Andrew is passionate about supporting Canberra’s diverse community. Through a range of innovative policies, he has helped shape Canberra to become Australia’s most inclusive city and the most LGBTIQ-friendly city in the country.

The Barr Labor Government is focused on creating a positive, progressive city that provides world-class healthcare, excellent schools and tertiary education, infrastructure and services that meets the community’s needs and expectations.

Over the next few years, Andrew will ensure Canberra is a shining example of contemporary urban renewal, with the city’s main avenues and public transport revitalised.

Through nation-leading tax reform, he aims to make Canberra a fairer place to live that leaves no-one behind.
