Heritage 101: An Introduction

For more than 30 years, the City of Regina has been a leader in recognizing the heritage value of historic places. The City of Regina’s Heritage Conservation Program ensures that historic places are protected, conserved and continue to contribute to the quality of life in our neighbourhoods. Historic places reinforce the sense of place that makes Regina unique from other communities.
Come hear about the tools used to identify, conserve and protect historic places. This talk will explore the history of heritage conservation in Regina, the regulatory environment at City Hall, and the current review of the Heritage Conservation Program.
