Heritage Properties & Conservation
The City takes an active lead in recognizing the cultural heritage value of buildings. Historic places are a source of civic pride and tell the story of our community. The City provides services to ensure that historic places are protected, conserved and contribute to the quality of life in our neighbourhoods.
There are about 300 heritage properties in Regina. This includes both municipal designated heritage properties , and those on the Heritage Inventory.
A designated heritage property has historical, cultural or architectural significance and is legally protected against demolition or significant change under The Heritage Property Act of Saskatchewan. There are currently about 100 municipal designated properties in Regina.
The Heritage Inventory (formally the Heritage Holding Bylaw) is a list of properties that are identified as having heritage value and the potential to become designated heritage properties.
Heritage Property Designation
Complete the Application for Municipal Heritage Designation to apply for designation. The City will evaluate applications based on the historical and architectural value of the property.
Alterations & Rehabilitation to Heritage Properties
Alterations and renovations that may change the main features that contribute to your property’s heritage value require approval to ensure that the work retains the heritage value of the property. You may also be eligible to receive financial assistance to rehabilitate designated heritage properties.
If you are planning exterior renovations, foundation stabilization or any work that may change the character- defining elements of your listed property, call 306-777-7000 to arrange for an appointment to review your plans. We can help ensure that the work retains the heritage value of the property and identify if financial incentives are available should you apply for designation.
The City recognizes individuals and organizations that have enhanced the quality of life of Regina through demonstrated commitment to built heritage.
