A mega project worth millions was officially opened in the heart of Regina’s North Central neighbourhood today.

It is called the Mamaweyatitan Centre, which is a Cree word that means let’s all be together.

The centre features a high school, a 33 space daycare, a public library, a community police station and a First Nations Elder’s ceremonial room.

"Students will acquire essential knowledge from adults in real-life environments and be engaged in traditional culture, giving students a sense of connection and a clear path to find personal academic success," said Education Minister Bronwyn Eyre.

It cost more than $42 million to build, and has been in the works for more than a decade. Construction began in 2015 and was recently completed. It came in on time and on budget.

It is state of the art and the only facility of its kind in Canada. The province provided the bulk of the funding at $31 million. The city came up with $8.8 million and the public library kicked in the rest.

Regina’s Mayor, Michael Fougere, described the centre as a game-changing facility for Regina that will help create a stronger, healthier and more engaged community.

Saskatchewan Environment expects a good moose hunt this fall PDF Print E-mail

Officials with Saskatchewan Environment say there should be a good moose hunt this fall.

Wildlife Biologist Rob Tether says the moose population remains strong in most areas of the province. He says a mild winter meant a good start to the year in both the northern and southern parts of the province.

"Moose came into the spring in really good condition, the natural mortality should be low, calf production would be very good, a lot of twinning occurred this spring," he said.

Tether says one area of concern is the boreal forest region south of La Ronge, where moose numbers have been on the decline for the past few years.

"South of La Ronge, as you move down toward Prince Albert, the numbers are definitely lower than they were 15 or 20 years ago, and there are a whole number of factors that are impacting that," he said.

Tether also says parts of the north are starting to see the benefits of the forest fires, which were experienced during the summer of 2015. New moose habitat can be found in areas that were burned out.

Most limits for sport hunters remain the same this year, with slight reductions in some wildlife management zones.

The latest information on big game hunting can be found in the Hunters and Trappers Guide at saskatchewan.ca/hunting
