Living in Regina

Regina is a small city with a big city feel; at least that’s one of the city’s numerous unofficial taglines. Basically there’s no shortage of things to do and people to meet on any day of the week. Unfortunately, the city gets a bad rap for being boring and un-exciting – this is mostly because events and things to do aren’t easy to find for newcomers and visitors. If you’re making the move to Regina (congratulations, by the way) don’t hold it up to incredibly high standards and you’ll have an amazing time. I’ve lived in Regina all my life, so I thought it best to write up this guide.

Misc / Things to Do/Links

·         The free biweekly newspaper the Prairie Dog Magazine is the best source of information on upcoming events including movies, music, theatre and other entertainment. Their website also lists events.
·         Regina has many excellent local restaurants to suit a variety of tastes, experiences and budgets. Many incorporate local meat and produce. There are also the standard chain restaurants and bars you’ll find across the country.
·         Links:
o   Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region
o   Saskatchewan Government Insurance (vehicle registration, drivers’ licenses)

·         Lastly, as a long-time resident of Regina I’d be glad to help you out if you have any questions. Email me at anytime.
