In 2005, Ms. McCuaig-Boyd was the recipient of the Robert H. Routledge Award from the Alberta Schools Athletic Association for outstanding service to Alberta students and for the promotion and operation of an athletic program.

She is an active member of the community serving as a member and president of the Fairview Rotary Club and as a board member of the Fairview Chamber of Commerce.


During the campaign, she advocated for a progressive tax and less reliance in the province on oil and gas money. She had no prior energy industry experience and the main reason for her appointment to the Energy portfolio may be her background in northern Alberta, where it is a vital industry.
