Construction of the Mâmawêyatitân Centre continues to be on budget and the unique building is well on its way to becoming a reality in North Central Regina. Construction is more than 25 per cent complete, and is expected to finish in late Spring 2017.
“The partner groups are pleased with how the Centre is proceeding,” Jeff Barber, Regina Public Library Director/CEO and Chair of the Owners’ Group, said. “There have been no significant delays and we are on track to open in Spring 2017.”

The North Central Community is invited to a celebration for the Mâmawêyatitân Centre on June 10th from 3:30 – 6:30 pm at the Albert Scott Community Centre. Come and see how construction is progressing, grab a burger and talk to the project partners about this exciting project!
On April 17, 2015 the Partners creating the North Central Shared Facility formally announced the new name for the facility now under construction.
Mâmawêyatitân, a Cree word meaning “let’s all be together”, accurately describes the integrated approach to programming that will be used within the facility once it opens in 2017.
