Regal Regina

Shimmering amongst Saskatchewan’s golden prairies, stands Regina—a warm-hearted metropolis emerging from a flat horizon.

The settlement was once a Cree hunting ground called Wascana, or Pile of Bones. But, British pioneers eventually renamed it Regina, the Latin word for queen, constructing a lake, parks, and buildings on its otherwise treeless plains.

Now, as one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, Regina draws newcomers from across the country and the world. Sure, the city’s booming economy is a big attraction, but the down-to-earth, welcoming people are what make you feel right at home.

Lively festivals and cultural events energize you across all seasons. Farm-to-table restaurants offer homegrown flavours from local chefs. And, of course, Roughriders supporters wear green more proudly than any CFL fan base in the country.

Want to immerse yourself in the city’s laidback lifestyle and culture? Explore trends from our Regina branch below.

Trend #1: Places to Wander

Take a stroll through Regina, and it won’t take long for a vintage gem to catch your eye. Downtown neighbourhoods like Cathedral and Heritage are beautifully walkable, filled with character homes, mature trees, and street festivals.

In the summer especially, step outside and be serenaded by funky guitars, cultural dancing, and food trucks. Awakening to a newfound focus on community, central neighbourhoods have become thriving places to raise a family.
