Henry Perrin Beatty, "PC (born June 1, 1950) is a "Canadian corporate executive and former politician.

Life and career[edit]

Beatty is a graduate of "Upper Canada College in "Toronto, "Ontario, and of the "University of Western Ontario in "London.

He first won election to the "House of Commons of Canada as a "Progressive Conservative at the age of 22 in the "1972 election.

In 1979 he became, at the time, the youngest person ever appointed to a "Canadian Cabinet when "Prime Minister "Joe Clark made Beatty his "minister of state for the Treasury Board in his short-lived government. Beatty returned to the "opposition benches as a result of the defeat of the Clark government in the "1980 election.

With the Conservative victory in the "1984 election, Prime Minister "Brian Mulroney made Beatty "Minister of National Revenue and Minister responsible for "Canada Post. He subsequently served as "Solicitor General of Canada (1985-1986), "Minister of National Defence (1986-1989), "Minister of National Health and Welfare (1989-1991), and the now-defunct position of "Minister of Communications (1991-1993).

Despite long being touted as a future Tory leader, Beatty did not run in the 1993 "Progressive Conservative leadership convention to succeed Mulroney. He was promoted to "Secretary of State for External Affairs in the short-lived government of Mulroney's successor, "Kim Campbell, but lost his seat in the "1993 election which returned only two Tory MPs.

In 1995 the "Liberal government of Prime Minister "Jean Chrétien appointed Beatty President and "Chief Executive Officer of the "Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, a position he held until 1999 when he became president and CEO of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, a business association that promotes the interests of Canadian industry and exporters. In August 2007 Beatty left the CME to become president and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

Beatty served as Chancellor of the "University of Ontario Institute of Technology ("UOIT) in "Oshawa, "Ontario from 2008 to 2015. He has received honourary degrees from UOIT and Western University.

In 2012 Beatty received an honorary Certified International Trade Professional (CITP) designation from the "Forum for International Trade Training.[1][2]
