Regina

Regina (rĬjī´nə), city (1991 pop. 179,178), provincial capital, S Sask., Canada, on Wascana Creek. The city is the distribution and service center for one of the world's largest wheat-growing areas. Industries include agricultural processing, meatpacking, printing, oil refining, and the manufacture of communications equipment and building materials.

Regina was founded in 1882 when a railroad line was constructed through the region. It was the capital of the Northwest Territories from 1883 to 1905, when it became the capital of the newly created Saskatchewan. From 1892 to 1920, Regina was the headquarters of the Northwest Mounted Police, and it is now western headquarters of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which maintains its crime detection laboratory there. The Univ. of Regina is located in the city, which is also home to a Canadian Football League team.
