Description : Regina becomes a city
By 1903, Regina had a population of 3,000. On June 19 of that year, Regina officially became a city. The city,s first mayor was Jacob W. Smith. Two years later, on September 4, 1905, Saskatchewan became a province. On May 23 the following year, Regina was confirmed as its capital.

The government of the new province needed a building in which to meet. In 1908, work began on the Legislative Building situated on Wascana Lake. It took four years to complete. Three hundred men worked day and night for a year and a half just to prepare the stone front of the building.
