Catalyst Committee

* UPDATE*

In response to a City Council motion on March 1, the City is partnering with Forum Research to conduct market research and an online survey, intended to determine the level of support for constructing an indoor multi-purpose event centre and the possibility of locating it downtown. The research and survey results will be provided to Council at its meeting on March 22, 2023, at which time deliberations regarding the Catalyst Committee’s recommendations will continue. The online survey is open until March 19, 2023 and you can access it at regina.ca/survey.

The five proposed projects are:

  • The Indoor Aquatic Centre
  • The Modernization of the Central Library
  • The Multi-Purpose Event Centre
  • The Multi-Purpose Outdoor Baseball Event Centre
  • The Synthetic Outdoor Field Project (Soccer)

These projects have the potential to attract people and businesses to Regina’s city centre, stimulating economic development and tourism, and improving community safety and quality of life for Regina residents.

In the fall of 2022, residents participated in public information sessions and an online survey to learn about the projects and provide their feedback and preferred prioritization of the various projects. Video recordings and PDF files of each project presentation are linked under the Documents and Videos sections of this page. Results of the online survey (including open-ended responses) are also available in the Documents section.

The Catalyst Committee is reviewing the project proposals and community feedback and will return to Council with a finalized report in early 2023.

  • Catalyst Committee Releases Community Survey Results

    Today, the Catalyst Committee released the results of its recent online survey about five potential recreation and culture facility projects to revitalize Regina. Thousands of residents offered their thoughts and feedback about the proposed projects by attending one or more public information sessions, completing the online community survey or submitting comments and questions through Be Heard Regina.

    “On behalf of the Catalyst Committee, thank you to the many residents who participated in the recent community engagement,” said Councillor Bob Hawkins, co-chair of the committee. “The input we received reflected a diversity of views as to prioritizing, siting and funding the proposed projects and will help inform the Committee’s recommendation.”

    Eight public information sessions were held from October 17 to 20 at Mosaic Stadium where more than 800 attendees heard presentations on each of the five proposals – a multi-purpose events centre (arena), indoor aquatic facility, multi-purpose outdoor baseball event centre, synthetic outdoor field (soccer) and modernization of the central Regina Public Library.

    “The level of engagement shown toward these projects demonstrates that we all have a desire to see our city grow and prosper while serving the needs of everyone who calls Regina home,” said Tim Reid, committee co-chair and president of REAL District. “As a committee, we are continuing to explore how to best align the proposals to maximize economic and community benefits and prepare a report with our recommendations for City Council early in the new year.”

    Approximately 4,500 people completed the community survey that ran from October 17 to November 10, 2022. The responses included more than 12,000 open-ended comments.
