Gord Archibald, executive officer at the Association of Regina Realtors® Inc., is not surprised that Regina ranks second in Canada, especially with the economic success and job opportunities the area offers right now, compared to other parts of the country.

Assuming the economy continues to perform very well and creates jobs, Regina will continue to see newcomers come into the Regina area and that will continue to create demand for housing.
Regina also ranked #6 in MoneySense’s top mid-sized cities to live in Canada in 2013 and #17 out of 200 cities surveyed across Canada.
