Regina Information

Regina is the capital of Saskatchewan, Canada. The city is situated on a broad, flat, treeless plain. There is an abundance of parks and greenspaces: all of its trees, shrubs and other plants were hand-planted and Regina's considerable beauty is entirely man-made.

Attractions for visitors in Regina include the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the Saskatchewan Science Centre, the Norman Mackenzie Art Gallery and numerous smaller galleries and museums. Aside from the many attractions, Regina is also rich in resources as agriculture, tourism, and oil and gas production fuel the economy. While Regina's economic base is diverse it is also recognized as one of the most affordable places to live, work a nd do business in western North America.
