Mayor Don Iveson

Mayor of Edmonton

Since his election as Edmonton’s 35th mayor in 2013, Don Iveson has led Edmonton’s transformation into a more uplifting, resilient and globally competitive city. Alongside his partner Sarah Chan, they both serve our community while raising two young children, working to make things better for all our kids and grandkids.

Harnessing a new confidence among Edmontonians, he is focused on the priorities of growing an opportunity economy, building a more family friendly city, accelerating our leadership on energy and climate, and planning for a million people – all while strengthening integrity and performance at City Hall.

Prior to entering public life, Iveson studied political science at the University of Alberta, then served as president of Canadian University Press in Toronto.
