TORONTO - Kathleen Wynne will be sworn in as Ontario's 25th premier on Feb. 11.
The date was announced after Wynne officially became the province's premier-designate.
Wynne and Dalton McGuinty met with Lt.-Gov. David Onley this morning to formally transfer power after she won the Liberal leadership on Saturday.
Her new cabinet will also be sworn in on Feb. 11.
Wynne has remained tight-lipped about who will be added or dropped from the Liberal front benches as the minority government prepares to face the opposition in the legislature for the first time in four months.
It will resume Feb. 19 after being prorogued by McGuinty when he announced his resignation on Oct. 15.
