Alfred Anderson
Vice-President
Minister: Culture & Heritage

Minister Alfred Anderson was born in St. Andrew's, Manitoba. Married for 50 years, Minister Anderson and his wife share three children and have four grandkids.

He became involved in the Selkirk Red River Local, where he was involved in building their first office, which later became the existing office for the Local. Elected as Vice Chair in 2005, Minister Anderson went on to be elected as Vice President of the Interlake Métis Association in 2010, and then again by acclamation in 2014 and 2018.

Always heavily involved in community events, Minister Anderson has been involved with National Aboriginal People's Day held in Selkirk Park for past 14 years, and has built floats for the Santa Claus Parade, Selkirk Fair and Rodeo, Métis Days, Quarry Days, as well as the Parade of Lights.

When the pandemic hit, causing events to be cancelled, Minster Anderson created the Métis Music Van, and brought music to the streets and the people. It quickly became a staple in the community and continues to make its rounds, allowing Minister Anderson to continue doing what he enjoys most - making people happy.

Minister Anderson currently serves as the Minister for the Culture and Heritage portfolio.
