Ontario Premier Doug Ford is appointing four new trade advisers to his Progressive Conservative government, two with strong personal ties to his office in addition to a former party president.

On the day Mr. Ford unveiled a sweeping cabinet shuffle, his office announced four "agents-general" appointees to the United States and London who will earn between $165,000 to $185,000 a year, plus expenses, to help Ontario businesses attract investments and grow.

Among them is Tyler Albrecht, a 26-year-old recent university graduate and financial analyst, who was given the New York City post. Mr. Albrecht has ties to Mr. Ford's chief of staff, Dean French, through their mutual involvement in lacrosse. He is also friends with Mr. French's sons.
