Rob Norris is a Canadian politician. He was elected to represent the electoral district of Saskatoon Greystone in the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan in the 2007 election. He is a member of the Saskatchewan Party.
In November 2007, Norris was appointed as the Minister of Advanced Education, Employment and Labour in the Saskatchewan Party government. On June 29, 2010, Norris's responsibilities were adjusted, with the Labour portfolio passing to the Minister of Justice, Don Morgan. Norris was made the Minister of Advanced Education, Employment and Immigration. He also carried responsibility for SaskPower and Innovation. Norris was dropped from the cabinet in a major shuffle on May 25, 2012.
In 2015, Rob Norris was named in a lawsuit against himself, Brad Wall, the Premier of Saskatchewan, and the University of Saskatchewan and its Board of Governors for the controversial firing of the President, Ilene Busch-Vishniac, after the Provost, Brett Fairbairn, fired an executive director at the university and ended his tenure for openly criticizing the university's leadership. Wall and Norris are accused of unlawfully inserting themselves into the Board's decision of firing Busch-Vishniac. The lawsuit is ongoing.
