The population of Regina is 193,100. A study released in 2008 showed that the population of the metropolitan area around Saskatchewan’s capital is growing more quickly than the one living in the city proper. Many people are moving out of Regina to “commuter towns” in more peaceful and safer areas and commute every day to the city to work.
The highest percentage of Regina’s population is of European decent – German, English, Scottish, Irish, Ukrainian and French. Aboriginal people make up 9.3 per cent and they are concentrated in relatively few communities – the North Central and Core.
Ninety-seven per cent of Regina residents are Canadian citizens. Among immigrants, who are eight per cent, only 2.3 per cent have come to Canada in the past 10 years.
