Former Alberta deputy minister to be president of University of Winnipeg

WINNIPEG - A former deputy minister in the Alberta government has been named the new president of the University of Winnipeg.

Annette Trimbee will replace outgoing president Lloyd Axworthy, the former Liberal politician who spent 10 years heading up the university.

He was recently named chancellor of St. Paul's University College at the University of Waterloo in Ontario.

During her time in the Alberta government, Trimbee has served as deputy minister in multiple portfolios including advanced education and technology.

She grew up in Winnipeg and graduated from the University of Winnipeg with a bachelor of science degree in biology in 1977. She also attained a master of science degree in botany from the University of Manitoba and later a PhD in ecology from McMaster University.

While a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alberta, her primary research focused on blue-green algae and the nutrient dynamics of lakes.

In a release, Trimbee said she is of Metis heritage, adding that the University of Winnipeg's commitment to serving aboriginal students appealed to her.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version had incorrect information about Lloyd Axworthy's recent appointment.
