Mayor Brian Bowman

2019 Golden Dragon Gala Honouree, Mayor Brian Bowman

Brian Bowman was first elected Mayor on October 22nd, 2014 becoming Winnipeg’s 43rd Mayor. He was re-elected Mayor on October 24th, 2018, increasing his plurality and capturing more than 53 percent of the votes cast.

Both of Brian’s campaigns signaled a positive, forward thinking vision for building a city whose population is on track toward a million people, and a vision to unite the city’s many diverse communities and cultures.

During his first term, Brian successfully worked to ensure Winnipeg became a key national voice on racism and inclusion, setting the city on a journey of reconciliation with its Indigenous residents, and adopting the city’s first Indigenous Accord. In his second term, he’s committed to making Winnipeg an international destination for human rights education, leadership, and promotion.

Since Brian took office, the city’s population has grown from 698,000 to over 753,000. Brian has remained focused on building a city today for the needs of a population forecasted to grow steadily and strongly well into the future. He oversaw and supported the city’s adoption of its first city-wide Asset Management Plan, as well as improved public disclosure and oversight of major capital projects.

Brian has been a committed supporter of Winnipeg’s business community including the city’s growing innovation and technology sectors. Brian has supported annual reductions to the city’s business tax, reduced administrative barriers for businesses, and has worked to build the city’s reputation and attract international businesses to Winnipeg such as Ubisoft, an international leader in software development.

Prior to taking office, Brian was a business lawyer and a partner in a major Winnipeg law firm. Alongside his law practice, Brian held many leadership roles across a range of boards and community organizations.

He and his wife Tracy are proud parents of two young boys. Brian wants to build a modern, safe city that his sons can grow up in and be proud to call home – along with all Winnipeggers.

Brian holds a Bachelor of Arts (Adv) in history and political studies from the University of Manitoba and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Toronto. He is the recipient of an honoury CJA.

Brian的兩次競選活動表達著一個積極的,前瞻性的愿景,即建設一個正在走向百萬人口的城市,以及團結城市眾多不同社區和文化的愿景。

自布萊恩上任以來,本市人口從698,000增加到超過753,000。布萊恩今天仍然專注于建設一個城市以滿足預測的穩定增長和未來發展人口的需求。他監督并支持該市采用其首個全市資產管理計劃,以及改善信息泄露和對主要資本項目的監督。

布萊恩一直是溫尼伯商業社區的忠實支持者,包括該市不斷發展的創新和技術領域。布萊恩支持每年減少城市的營業稅,減少企業的行政障礙,并努力建立城市的聲譽,吸引更多的國際企業來到溫尼伯,如軟件開發的國際領導者Ubisoft。

在上任之前,布萊恩曾是一名商業律師,也是溫尼伯一家大型律師事務所的合伙人。除了他的法律實踐,布萊恩還在一系列董事會和社區組織中擔任過許多領導角色。

他和他的妻子特蕾西是令他們兩個小男孩驕傲的父母。布萊恩希望建立一個現代化,安全的城市,讓他的兒子們可以在這里快樂的成長,與所有溫尼伯的人們一起并自豪地稱這里為家。
