North Central Regina Celebrates the Grand Opening of Mâmawêyatitân Centre

Released on September 12, 2017

Today, Education Minister Bronwyn Eyre along with representatives from Regina Public Schools, City of Regina, and Regina Public Library, joined with Elders, students, teachers and members of the north central community to celebrate the grand opening of the $42.2 million mâmawêyatitân centre.

The 108,000 square foot centre is the first of its kind in Canada and will be offering integrated services in one central place to build and enhance the community.  The facility includes a new Scott Collegiate High School, a 33 space child care centre, city recreational complex, public library branch, community policing centre, and a First Nations Elders’ ceremonial room.

The Government of Saskatchewan contributed $31 million toward the new Scott Collegiate High School.

“Our government is pleased to have supported this unique integrated facility that has become a central hub of North Central Regina and provides an array of services and educational opportunities for students, early learners, library users and the entire community,” Eyre said.  “Students attending Scott Collegiate at mâmawêyatitân centre will acquire essential knowledge from adults in real-life environments and be engaged in traditional culture, giving students a sense of connection and a clear path to find personal academic success.”

“The opening of the new Scott Collegiate at mâmawêyatitân centre celebrates the fulfilment of a journey of collaboration more than a decade in the making,” Regina Board of Education Chair Katherine Gagne said.  “Many organizations and individuals have worked to make this opening possible; the students and Scott Collegiate community in north central Regina will benefit for many decades to come.”

The City of Regina committed $8.8 million to support the creation of the North Central Community Learning Centre.

“This is a game-changing facility for our city,” City of Regina Mayor Michael Fougere said.  “Years of hard work have created a significant, adaptable space that will bring the community together, as well as create a space to easily access a multitude of services and programming.  This will help create a stronger, healthier, and more engaged community.”

Regina Public Library is investing $2.4 million to support the creation of Regina Public Library’s Albert Branch.

“Regina Public Library is pleased to be part of such a unique gathering space,” Regina Public Library Board of Directors Chair Sean Quinlan said.  “The opportunity to collaborate with partners and other community organizations will help ensure unique and responsive programming for the neighbourhood and residents of the city.”

Outside mâmawêyatitân centre, work is continuing on a garden, basketball court and soccer pitch.  Additionally, the Mosaic Company has provided $100,000 toward building a green space for cultural teaching and storytelling.  The outdoor space called the “Heart of the Site” will be completed by spring 2018 and built in a circular pattern with elements guided by Indigenous teachings and practices.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have also partnered and will provide positive role modeling and programming for students and families.  The name mâmawêyatitân is a Cree word for “let’s be all together.”

The integrated facility is located on the former site of Scott Collegiate and Albert-Scott Community Centre.  In Regina, this is the first time a wide range of community services have come together to one urban community, and the first time that learning experiences will take place within one shared community.
