Tim McMillan, Garrison Strategy
Tim grew up on a grain and cattle family farm near Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. After earning an Economics degree from the University of Victoria, he returned to the family farm, founded and operated an oilfield services company and a cattle operation. As a business owner who felt Saskatchewan was not reaching its potential, he pursued a seat in the Saskatchewan Legislature. In 2007, Tim was elected as a Saskatchewan Party MLA in the riding of Lloydminster. In his time in government Tim held several strategic Cabinet Portfolios, including Minister of Energy and Resources, and Minister of Trade. In 2014, Tim joined the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producer (CAPP) as President and CEO. For 8 years Tim led the industry association in its broad range of advocacy efforts across the country through some on the most tumultuous times the industry has faced, retiring from the role in 2022.
In his current role as a founding partner at Garrison Strategy, Tim draws upon this experience in public policy and as an experienced communicator to achieve results for his clients.
