Background

McGrath was born and raised in St. John's before moving to the mining area of Labrador West in the 1970s. He has run six businesses in the area and is a longtime volunteer. Prior to his election as MHA he served on the Labrador City Town Council and was President of Combined Council of Labrador.

In August 2011, McGrath defeated Peter McCormick and Olympic gold medalist Mark Nichols to win the Progressive Conservative nomination in the district of Labrador West. In the October provincial election McGrath was elected as the MHA, winning 51 percent of the popular vote. On October 28, 2011, McGrath was sworn in as the Minister for Intergovernmental and Aboriginal Affairs and Minister Responsible for Labrador Affairs, and the Voluntary and Non-Profit Sector.

McGrath resigned as Minister of Transportation and Works on September 29, 2014, following a report by the Auditor General which indicated McGrath pushed through the cancellation of a multimillion-dollar contract within hours without notifying senior government officials or the premier. Premier Paul Davis stated that he would have asked for McGrath's resignation had he not quit first.

In the 2015 election McGrath placed third after Graham Letto and Ron Barron.
