Jasmine’s parents instilled in their children a strong work ethic, a passion for service and a deep pride in Canada. Her father, Shahid Mian immigrated to Canada from Pakistan in 1985 and works in automative manufacturing. Her mother, Catherine worked as nurse for 43 years. Jasmine’s brother, Ismael Mian (pictured) served in the Canadian Armed Forces and Jasmine represented Canada at the 2016 Olympics.
A Vision for the Future
Like many Calgarians, Jasmine came west to pursue opportunity and has lived with her husband Jake in north central Calgary since 2012. Holding Master’s Degrees in both Psychology and Public Policy, she brings a deep understanding of the fiscal challenges faced by Calgary and believes that with the right leadership, we can build a strong future for our city. Jasmine recently left a position in management consulting to focus on meeting as many Ward 3 residents as possible, so that our voices can be effectively represented at City Hall.
A Community Builder
Jasmine is a passionate volunteer with organizations including Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Calgary and Ask Her YYC. She has served on national working groups on topics such as good governance and risk management. She has been a vocal champion for safety and represents Canada on international and national commissions such as the Canadian Olympic Committee’s Athlete Commission.
A Values-Based Leader
Jasmine learned many of her fundamental values from sport and understood early on that teamwork and collaboration would be instrumental in her success. In addition to being an Olympian, she is a University World Champion and Commonwealth Games Medalist. Jasmine not only rose to the top of her sport, but she has also been instrumental in changing it for the better, having served on the Board of Directors and Management Team of Wrestling’s National Sport Organization. She hopes to bring those values and her leadership to city council.
