West Edmonton Mall's First Mayor of the Mall, Maya

West Edmonton Mall and Local Environmental Services are proud to partner with AdaptAbilities to introduce Maya as the inaugural Mayor of the Mall.

As the Mayor of the Mall, Maya and her family will be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience at West Edmonton Mall tailored specifically to her interests, including transportation from WEM Toyota, VIP access to WEM attractions, shopping sprees at her favourite stores, and a night at Fantasyland Hotel.

Both West Edmonton Mall and Local Environmental Services place a strong emphasis on support of the local economy and broader community and are thrilled to utilize this shared mission to create the Mayor of the Mall charitable program.

AdaptAbilities was selected as the first charitable partner in recognition of their mission to create possibilities for individuals with special needs and their families, empowering them to grow, succeed, and belong.

“West Edmonton Mall and Local Environmental Services are excited to try and make a difference in these amazing kids’ lives. Along with their families, some may be going through very difficult challenges and other kids just deserve recognition of their amazing contributions. We look forward to harnessing the combined power of our people and WEM’s unparalleled offerings to create an experience that they’ll never forget.”
