Brian Bowman was elected in a landslide victory on October 22nd, 2014 to become the 43rd Mayor of the City of Winnipeg.

Since becoming Mayor, Bowman has passionately worked towards fixing Winnipeg’s racism problem – changing the city’s label by Maclean’s magazine as “most racist city in Canada” to “a leader in fixing Canada’s racism problem” in the span of one year. Mayor Bowman himself is Métis, and is the nation’s first Aboriginal mayor.

Prior to becoming Mayor, Brian was a partner at one of Winnipeg’s top law firms, and a national leader in the emerging fields of social media, access to information, and privacy law. He used his role as partner to protect victims of cyber-bullying and for the protection of individuals’ personal rights.

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.
