Impact across the Region

Mayor Sohi’s passion lies in ensuring that everyone has a place to call home, addressing core housing needs and building a thriving City for all. He is also a strong advocate for developing the downtown core, knowing that a strong core results in a strong Region.

As the Region grows, Mayor Sohi has advocated for ensuring our parks remain vibrant and ecologically resilient. This is particularly true of the North Saskatchewan River valley and ravine system, which is one of our Region’s greatest environmental assets, running from Devon to Fort Saskatchewan—the largest continuous park system in Canada.

He promotes working with Indigenous community members to ensure traditional knowledge informs the preservation and restoration of natural spaces.

He also advocates for a prosperous and competitive Region as a representative for the City at Edmonton Global, Explore Edmonton, and the Collaborative Economic Development initiative.
