Canadian politician who is the 36th mayor of Calgary, Alberta. He was elected in the 2010 municipal election, becoming the first visible minority mayor of a Canadian municipality with a population of at least 100,000 and the first Muslim mayor of a large North American city. He was re-elected in 2013 with 74% of the vote.

Nenshi was raised in Calgary. His parents, Kurbanali Hussein and Noorjah, were South Asian origin immigrants to Canada from Tanzania, and he has a sister.

Nenshi donated 10% of his 2012 salary, amounting to CAD$20,000, to a Calgary charity in response to a 6% pay raise approved for city councillors.

Nenshi was awarded the 'World Mayor' prize in 2014 by the City Mayors Foundation. He became the first Canadian mayor to win this award.
