Mayor Olivia Chow

Olivia Chow is the 66th Mayor of Toronto, the first person of Asian descent to serve as Mayor, and the first woman since the six municipalities of Metro Toronto were amalgamated into one in 1998.

In 2023, building on a long history of activism and community organizing, Olivia Chow ran for and won election as Mayor of Toronto, pledging to build a more affordable, safe, and caring city where everyone belongs.

Throughout her career, Mayor Chow has been driven by the belief that we are always stronger together.
