Invite Mayor Iveson to attend or speak at your event. All requests are subject to the Mayor's availability.
Since being elected as Mayor, Don Iveson has become Edmonton'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 issues.
Connect with the Mayor
A proclamation is a formal document that dedicates a day, week or month to honour a special event, cause or purpose. Proclamations may be requested by Edmonton-based organizations and are intended to recognize initiatives or events that directly impact Edmontonians, including:
- Civic initiatives and campaigns
- Charitable or community initiatives
- Health and public service initiatives
- Multicultural awareness initiatives or events
The Mayor’s Office may deny requests that are mainly personal, private, partisan, polarizing or commercial in nature. Some requests that do not meet the criteria for a proclamation may instead be considered for a congratulatory certificate.
Mayor's messages are short greetings of about four paragraphs usually written for publication in programs or booklets by organizers of community events or conferences. They are signed by the Mayor and can include his picture if requested.
Certificates of Congratulations
Certificates of congratulations are custom certificates to recognize special events and achievement in the community. Certificates are often presented to people and organizations on reaching a significant milestone in their life or history — an anniversary, birthdays for persons celebrating 65th birthdays and older, certificates to athletes and to businesses on official openings.
For the 2017-2021 term, the Mayor’s Office has voluntarily implemented a lobbyist registry. Lobbying is a legitimate activity in a free and democratic society.
The purpose of the registry is to contribute to increasing Edmontonians’ confidence in the integrity of the local government decision-making process, and to promote government transparency and accountability.
