Minister of Sport and Recreation Services
Yvette Berry MLA is an ACT Labor Party member of the Legislative Assembly elected to represent the seat of Ginninderra in 2012; she became a Minister in 2015 and Minister for Sport and Recreation in January 2016.
Yvette grew up in West Belconnen playing basketball and softball, and sport has never stopped being a big part of her life. Today she’s an avid supporter of the Canberra Capitals and Canberra United and happily ferries her kids all around Canberra to soccer, tennis, Little Athletics and the skateboard park.
Sport brings people together from all walks of life and all over the city. The enthusiasm and diversity of Canberra’s sports community fuels Yvette’s belief that participation helps build strong communities in the ACT.
Yvette is also Minister for Housing, Community Services and Social Inclusion, Multicultural and Youth Affairs, and Minister for Women.
