Saskatchewan Commits Nearly $8 million to the Provincial Capital Commission

Released on November 18, 2021

Supporting the PCC's Environmental, Tourism and Historical Preservation Mandate

For the fiscal year 2021-22, the Government of Saskatchewan has committed more than $7.8 million to the operations of the Provincial Capital Commission (PCC) in Regina. This represents approximately 70 per cent of the organization's annual funding, with the remainder ensured by partners: the City of Regina and the University of Regina. Additional funding is raised from PCC programs and events.

“The PCC serves hundreds of thousands of visitors every year through the operation, management and stewardship of Government House and Wascana Centre,” Minister Responsible for the PCC Don McMorris said. “The PCC represents an important partnership with the City of Regina and the University of Regina by improving quality of life and creating pride in our capital city through educational programming, public events and celebratory opportunities.”

The PCC provides for the operation, management and stewardship of public assets that include Government House and Wascana Centre, enhancing quality of life and creating pride in the capital city through educational programming, public events and celebratory opportunities. The PCC acts as a regulator for all land use within Wascana Centre.

In 2021-22, the PCC notably invested in initiatives to make Wascana Centre's picnic areas and Candy Cane Park more accessible; hosted hundreds of public and private events while prioritizing public health; and began planning on an upcoming ice rink near the legislative landing that will be ready for the public in the new year.

"In addition to our new investments in the park and at Government House, the PCC also continues to maintain the nature and historical artifacts entrusted in us," PCC Chief Executive Officer Monique Goffinet Miller said. "Whether it's the 40,000 trees and 276 types of birds in Wascana, 37,000 plants in the Queen Elizabeth II Gardens or the 10,000 artifacts at Government House, PCC staff are hard at work every day to make sure our grandchildren can enjoy our sites just as much as you and I today."

PCC sites are passing to winter hours. For more details and for the public to book free tours at either location, please visit wascana.ca, governmenthousesk.ca or follow the Facebook feeds for each.
