Wonderful place, great people 5 rating By Anonymous ( Nov 13, 2023) I don't know what the person below is talking about. Judging a place just because kids are dirty is shameful and brings unnecessary attention to otherwise a great place. I was a kid once, a tomboy. Guardians had a heck of a time keeping me clean as I was always out playing wit ...Read More h the boys. This person should not have be able to place that review. Just because someone is dirty doesn't mean there's something wrong. Good grief you're judgmentally mean. If you don't like it, like they say about tv, don't watch and go back to your 'perfect life' or whatever it is. Read Less
Teachers at St. Mathew School 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Oct 01, 2022) Maybe I'm wrong but the teachers HAVE to put some attention to the HEALTH of their students, especially 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade because some girls and boys ARE SO NEGLECTED by their owns parents. I think first step is to contact the parents and health officials if possible (Some chi ...Read More ldren look like those of the poorest countries in the world).

Compare Regina, SK Livability


      Regina, SK

      Regina, the capital and commercial hub of Saskatchewan is a multicultural city with a distinct character, home to a large number of First Nations people and immigrants from South and South East Asia. Named for Queen Victoria, also known as Victoria Regina, the city is proud of its connection to the British era, a heritage reflected in the city’s architecture and street names. Our Regina Livability guide will give you an insider’s perspective on living in and enjoying the best of this beautiful city.

      The cost of living in the Saskatchewan region is quite high and Regina is no exception. Residents pay higher rents, taxes and higher rates for consumer goods due to the high cost of transporting goods and maintenance. However, as the commercial heart of the province, wages are also relatively high and most residents work in either the governmental sector, in IT and telecommunications or the energy sector. The residents of Regina form a close-knit community, which along with the safe neighbourhoods with an abundance of parks and green spaces, make it an ideal place to raise a family.

      Whether you’re looking for a charming historic residence, such as those available in the Crescents area and Lakeview, or the more modern developments or loft apartments of the Warehouse district, Regina offers a range of diverse neighbourhoods to suit every lifestyle. Dewdney Avenue is also another popular area, with a number of restaurants and bars that make it perfect for down time and unwinding after a long day’s work.

      Regina has a substantial cultural life and many activities guaranteed to keep you entertained throughout the year. For music and theatre lovers, the University of Regina has a fine music and arts program that draws students from across the country and whose performances are open to the public. Most Regina locals will highlight the Regina Folk Festival, the Regina Dragon Boat Festival and the annual Kiwanis Music Festival as popular events for tourists and residents alike, and you must visit these for a taste of the community atmosphere that gives Regina its characteristic culture.
