National Indigenous Peoples Day Celebrations Cancelled
The City of Regina is postponing City-organized events in alignment with public health efforts throughout Canada to minimize and prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes the National Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations held in Victoria park every June.
This would have been the City’s eighth year celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day.
“National Indigenous Peoples Day is a tradition in Regina and it will return,” says Mayor Michael Fougere. “It has been a point of pride to see more people and organizations coming together each year as a community to celebrate and acknowledge the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada.”
The City of Regina’s top priority is the health, safety and well-being of the community and our employees. The City continues to work with internal and external partners, including the Saskatchewan Health Authority, the Ministry of Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada on a proactive approach to deal with COVID-19, including limiting indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than 10 people, except for families in the same household, and where critical public and business services are conducted.
