Keynote Speaker: Don Iveson, Mayor, City of Edmonton

Research demonstrates ties between impoverished circumstances and diminished health and wellness. Defining health as the balance of an individual's interconnected physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions is the approach used by the mayor's task force to eliminate poverty. As the End Poverty Edmonton task force tests its recommendations with the community this spring and finalizes its recommendations to City Council this fall, the scope of its challenge is immense: over 100,000 Edmontonians live in poverty, 30,000 of which are children with an overrepresentation of the indigenous community.

Don Iveson was elected Edmonton’s 35th mayor in the fall of 2013. As Mayor, her chairs City Council’s Executive and Audit Committees, and sits on the boards of Edmonton Economic Development and the Capital Region Board.


Mayor Ivenson envisions Edmonton as a globally competitive city – supporting and nurturing an entrepreneurial culture, as a city-building pioneer – creating attractive options in housing and transportation for residents, and as a municipal government leader – innovating and showing value in public service through effective decision-making with a long-term view to the environment and a healthy, inclusive city.


First elected to City Council in 2007, Iveson served two terms as councilor for southwest Edmonton. As Councillor, her chaired City  Council’s Transportation & Infrastructure, and Utility Committees, and the Capital Region Board’s Regional Transit Committee.


After graduating from the University of Alberta, Iveson headed Canadian University Press in Toronto and then worked in media and government relations before entering political office.

Mayor Iveson is married to Sarah Chan and, together, they have two young children.
