Meet Winnipeg’s 2022 city council


Things will look a little different at City Hall in downtown Winnipeg for the next few years.

With previous mayor Brian Bowman stepping down after two terms, and two councillors throwing their names in the ring for his job — not to mention a host of challengers for seats across the city — council was bound to have a different makeup.

Here’s who will be representing Winnipeg, which faces have changed, and which councillors have successfully defended their seats.

As of midnight, the election results remain unofficial.

Who’s out: Brian Bowman, a privacy lawyer prior to his entry into politics, was the 43rd mayor of Winnipeg. First elected in the 2014 municipal election, he was re-elected for a second term in October 2018. Bowman decided not to run for a third term, choosing to return to private life.
