Over the years, he has held positions with the River East Transcona School Division, Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre, and University of Winnipeg. Chief was instrumental in creating the partnership between the Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre and The Manitoba Moose Yearling Foundation to implement a hockey initiative for students who may not have received the opportunity otherwise.

Before becoming vice-president at the Business Council of Manitoba, Kevin spent six years as a member of the Legislative Assembly in Manitoba, representing Point Douglas. He was appointed Minister of Children and Youth Opportunities in 2012, Minister responsible for the City of Winnipeg in 2013, and Minister of Jobs and the Economy in 2014. While serving as a minister, Kevin was a member of Treasury Board and chaired the Healthy Child Committee of Cabinet.

Chief received a B.A. from the University of Winnipeg with a major in Justice and Law Enforcement and a minor in Physical Activity and Sport Study. Kevin is also a sought after speaker for his views on the importance of education and leadership development within Winnipeg and Manitoba. For his efforts, Chief was awarded the Future Leaders of Manitoba Award for Community Service reflecting his vision and commitment to influence positive change in the community.



Continuing the tradition of past Multifaith Leadership Breakfasts:

2018 - Our Multifaith Leadership Breakfast: "Strangers No More: Refugees, Schools and a Future for All," examined howManitoba teachers and administrators are meeting the challenge of the many young refugees coming into our Manitoba classrooms. Our guest speaker Mohammad Rezai, Vice-Principal of Grant Park High School is himself familiar with the refugee experience, having left Iran at theage of 20. Grant Park is home to 1300 students and includes a large number of Inclusion Support, newcomer, and refugee (mostly privately sponsored) students. Mr. Rezai spoke passionately about how schools must make themselves ready for the refugee children, rather than the children ensuring that they are ready for schools.

2017 - Dr. Niigaan Sinclair, University of Manitoba Department of Native Studies Department Head: Birthdays & Genocides: Reconciling Canada's 150 Years.

2016 - Nahanni Fontaine: Special Advisor on Aboriginal Women's Issues (Aboriginal Issues Committee of Cabinet, Province of Manitoba): "Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women And Girls (MMIWG), Racism and The Way Forward."

2015 - Rabbi Shaul Osadchey of Calgary’s Beth Tzedec Congregation, talking about their innovative 5-year study & experiential program to learn about other faith traditions. Each year a scholar from a selected religious tradition will be on the synagogue staff to teach and create programs to foster understanding and to build bridges of respect and cooperation between that religious community and the Jewish community.

2014 - Winnipeg Police Chief Devon Clunis, as someone passionately concerned for our city, willing to listen and speak on its behalf.
