The Minister of Culture, Heritage, Tourism and Sport is a cabinet minister in the government of Manitoba. The position can be traced back to 1966, when Attorney-General Sterling Lyon was named as Minister of Tourism and Recreation. The newly elected government of Edward Schreyer added a separate ministry of Cultural Affairs in 1969, and united the two ministries in 1971. In 1978, a minister in Sterling Lyon's government was given responsibility for Sport. The precise ministerial designations have changed many times.

Responsibility for Tourism was transferred to the Economic Development portfolio in 1979, and was not re-united with Culture until 1999. Culture Ministers were also responsible for Citizenship from 1991 until 1999, when the responsibility was given to the Minister of Labour and Immigration.

The current Minister of Tourism, Culture, Heritage, Sport and Consumer Protection is Ron Lemieux, who has held all of the responsibilities associated with the position since October 2013.
