Doors Open Regina grants public access to heritage buildings and other sites that are normally closed to the public. It is part of an international movement that aims to create public access to these buildings. Doors Open Regina is presented by Harvard Developments Inc., A Hill Company.

Pick up a copy of the Doors Open brochure (which has descriptions and tour information for each site along with a map) on the north side of the Cenotaph. Look for the Regina Downtown canopy.
