Heritage Conservation

Protecting buildings with heritage significance throughout Regina is important to preserving our city’s cultural history.

A review of the City’s Heritage Building Rehabilitation Program (HBRP) is currently underway to explore ways the HBRP may be expanded to encourage a higher level of heritage conservation in Regina, as well as to ensure that the Heritage Incentive Policy provides the necessary flexibility for heritage property owners.

The HBRP provides financial assistance to conserve properties that have been formally designated as municipal heritage properties pursuant to the Heritage Property Act.

Specific goals of this program review include:

  • Research of best practices on how to incentivize the conservation of heritage properties
  • Analyzing opportunities for new incentives and determining their viability for Regina
  • Introducing new standards of maintenance for heritage-designated properties

During this review, the City will be seeking feedback from stakeholders on their experience with the HBRP, strengths of the current program and its incentives, opportunities for improvement, as well as input on different types of heritage building incentives the City may consider.

Anyone interested in this topic is encouraged to sign up and check back for engagement activities.
