Thank you, Edmonton.

As one of the youngest, fastest-growing cities in the country and with emerging economic strengths, Edmonton is quickly becoming the Canadian big city to watch.

“Four times now we’ve set out not to win an election; instead, we’ve set out to listen, to dialog, to build and share ideas, and to inspire. The campaigns that do this best often win... We’re not finished listening just because the polls are closed - but we do have a clear sense of direction.”

Let's accelerate our leadership on the environment... fast-tracking electrification of our bus fleet, staying true to Council’s low-carbon vision for Blatchford, and by leveraging our industry leadership in green building technologies. Read more...

A Mayor Who’s Proven He’s Up To The Challenge Of Change.

In his first term as Mayor, Don Iveson has become our city’s ‘Collaborator-in-Chief’, a champion of open and effective local government, and a pragmatic leader who has led Edmonton through a time of profound change by taking on some of our city’s most pressing challenges:

Uniting the region

Uniting the region

Spearheaded regional economic cooperation after decades of infighting and pushed to raise density levels across the region to balance growth and improve infrastructure efficiency.

Uniting the region

Building more LRT

Led Canada’s Big City mayors in reaching a historic new transit deal with Ottawa and secured funding to build the Valley Line LRT.

Uniting the region

Looking after the basics

Ensured we’re looking after basic infrastructure through consistent, data-driven fixes for our roads and sewers and securing funds for long-overdue upgrades to Yellowhead Trail.

Uniting the region

Focusing on fiscal efficiency

Led efforts to produce more than $90 million in efficiencies and cost avoidances over the last four years, helping to make this year’s tax increase the lowest in a decade.

Uniting the region

Slowing population loss in core neighbourhoods

Created more opportunities for infill across the city, ensuring better return on existing infrastructure and more vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods.

Uniting the region

Growing the economy

Pushed to streamline approvals for entrepreneurs, launched work to grow our health innovation sector, and promoted Edmonton’s investment opportunities at home and abroad.

Uniting the region

Lifting Edmontonians out of poverty

Spearheaded the End Poverty Edmonton initiative, a community-owned, inclusion-based strategy that led to the launch of our new low-income transit pass.
