Regina is a diverse city, and becoming more so every year as immigration increases. Before settlers arrived to live here in the 1880s, Indigenous peoples travelled through this area following the roaming herds of buffalo, which they hunted for food, shelter and clothing. Regina is home to many Indigenous people, who are themselves a growing part of our population.
In the 1880s, settlers began arriving to claim farmland in this area – the first wave of immigration. Most of these first settlers came from more eastern parts of Canada, from the British Isles or from our southern neighbour, the United States of America. Since then, there have been various waves of immigration from all around the world.
