Premier Doug Ford has shuffled his cabinet.
The move comes just months after taking the reins of power in the province and the resignation of one of his ministers last week.
In a release this morning, Ford says House leader Todd Smith takes on additional role of minister of economic development, job creation and trade to replace Jim Wilson, who stepped down on Friday citing addiction issues.
John Yakabuski, who served as transportation minister, will become minister of natural resources and forestry.
Jeff Yurek, who held the natural resources portfolio, will take on the transportation file.
Sylvia Jones will take over the job of community safety and correctional services minister from Michael Tibollo, who will become minister of tourism, culture and sport.
Bill Walker will join cabinet by succeeding Smith as minister of government and consumer services.
