Welcome to new Deputy Ministers


​The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association is extending a warm welcome to two new Deputy Ministers.

Bruce Rodrigues, Chief Executive Officer of the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO), has been appointed Ontario’s Deputy Minister of Education. He will remain with the provincial agency until the middle of October before taking his new role with the Ministry of Education.

Mr. Rodrigues takes over the role from interim Deputy Minister of Education Nancy Matthews, who becomes Deputy Minister of Children and Youth Services.

We look forward to working with Mr. Rodrigues and Ms. Matthews in months ahead on behalf of the more than 1.2 million public elementary and secondary school students.
