The City of Regina is commemorating the official signing of Treaty 4 on September 15, 1874 in Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan, by flying Treaty 4 flags on the Albert Street Bridge.

“Regina is located on Treaty 4 land and within the traditional territory of the Métis,” Mayor Michael Fougere said. “Raising Treaty 4 flags on Albert Street honours the contribution Indigenous people have made to the building and shaping of Regina.”

The Treaties are formal agreements between the Crown and First Nations, outlining obligations and expectations. The intent of the Treaties was to create and foster mutually beneficial arrangements that pursue and promote relationships based on friendship, peace and goodwill.

This initiative stems from discussion at a recent Reconciliation Regina meeting. For more information visit Regina.ca.
