Don Iveson

Executive Advisor, Climate Investing and Community Resilience, Co-operators

Don Iveson served as Edmonton’s 35th Mayor from 2013 to 2021 with a guiding leadership principle to make things better for the next generation. This long-term view is now embedded in: Edmonton’s smart-growth City Plan; City Council’s Energy Transition Strategy; and Edmonton’s nation-leading work on stormwater management and climate adaptation. Since retiring from City Hall, he continues to live in Edmonton — to see how it all turns out.

Carrying on these themes, he is ramping up Civic Good: a public policy advisory practice working on climate, housing and complex governance projects with like-minded clients ranging from startups to governments — including working with Co-operators as Executive Advisor for Climate Investing and Community Resilience.

Believing strongly in connecting passion with service, he volunteers as Board Co-Chair of the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness. More recently he has been appointed Co-Chair of the Task Force on Housing and Climate. Don has also accepted an appointment as a School of Cities Canadian Urban Leader at the University of Toronto.
