Municipal government — Regina’s local government

Regina’s municipal government is run by an elected City Council. City Councillors are elected through a ward system with the city divided into 10 wards. The Mayor is elected at large and chairs the Council meetings. Councillors and the Mayor are elected for four-year terms.

The City Administration handles the day-to-day administration of the City, under policies set by City Council.

Residents are invited to comment on issues at committee meetings or at City Council meetings. As well, they are invited to contact their City Councillor or the Mayor. For information on City Council members visit the City website or phone 306-777-7000.

Just over half the money needed to provide civic programs and services comes from property taxes. Other revenue sources include user fees, utility fees and grants from other levels of government.

One important facility for municipal government is City Hall at 2476 Victoria Avenue in downtown Regina, where City Council meets in public sessions throughout the year. In front of City Hall is a large statue celebrating the many immigrants who have built our community and province.
