Lisa MacLeod will now oversee the provincial heritage file in addition to her duties as minister of sport, tourism and culture.

The changes come after Ford shuffled his cabinet last spring, moving a number of ministers including McNaughton, Romano and MacLeod to new roles.

The provincial legislature has been on an extended break since it rose in June but a new session will start next week.
