Record Infrastructure Investment Accelerates Progress on Capital Projects in Saskatchewan

Released on May 15, 2024

Construction is ongoing across Saskatchewan communities as part of the government's investment of more than an all-time high $4.4 billion in capital projects to support classrooms, care and communities and meet the growing needs of Saskatchewan families and their communities. This includes nearly $1.9 billion in capital projects across executive government and approximately $2.6 billion in capital projects by the province's commercial Crown corporations. The 2024-25 Budget includes the largest investment ever in health capital of more than $516.8 million, $216.0 million in school infrastructure, $59.0 million in Saskatchewan's post-secondary infrastructure, and $301.9 million in government services infrastructure.

"This year's record investment in infrastructure to drive vital capital projects across the province underscores our dedication to ensuring tangible growth," SaskBuilds and Procurement Minister Joe Hargrave said. "These investments will create job opportunities, stimulate economic activity, and improve connectivity, ensuring that Saskatchewan remains a desirable place to live, work and raise a family. Together, we are building a legacy of sustainable development and infrastructure excellence that will positively impact our communities for years to come."

Construction of the new Regina Urgent Care Centre at 1320 Albert Street is now 100 per cent complete. Staff recruitment is underway; Installation and testing of equipment and furnishings will take place over the coming weeks. An opening date is expected this summer once staff are in place and training has been completed.

Large pre-cast concrete panels are arriving daily and the framework of the new Regina General Hospital parkade will begin to take shape over the coming weeks. Manufactured offsite, over 500 concrete panels ranging in size and up to 60 feet long, will be installed with the aid of a crane. The project is partially funded by a one-time payment of $22.4 million from the Government of Saskatchewan to Link Developments upon completion and supplemented by monthly payments from the Saskatchewan Health Authority over the next 30 years. Link Developments Ltd. began construction of the parkade in late 2023, with completion targeted for late 2024.

Construction of the new Weyburn General Hospital is approximately 30 per cent complete, with the building's superstructure and shell well underway. This includes exterior walls, roofs and windows as well as interior floors and mechanical and electrical rough-ins in their early stages. Construction is expected to be completed by late 2025.

Progress on the Prince Albert Victoria Hospital project is moving ahead with construction beginning on the new acute care tower. A new staff and visitor parking lot is being constructed this spring to make way for the structure to be built in the former parking area.
