The Regina Downtown Business Improvement District (RDBID) is a non-profit organization that provides a range of business and community services to enhance and promote downtown Regina; working to improve conditions for businesses operating in the district, and to improve the quality of life for those who shop, work, live and play downtown. Regina Downtown’s services supplement those provided by the City of Regina. RDBID was originally established as Regina’s Market Square in 1981. In 2002 the name of the organization was changed to Regina Downtown Business Improvement District.
Authorized under Section 25 & 26 of The Cities Act and City of Regina Bylaw No 2001–76, Regina Downtown programs and services are financed by a special assessment collected from commercial property owners located in the defined boundaries of the downtown district. This downtown district encompasses a 53-block area bordered by Angus Street to the west, 13th Avenue to the south, Halifax Street to the east and Saskatchewan Drive to the north with an extension along Broad Street south to College Avenue.
Our staff, led by the RDBID Board of Directors, work hard to help our members get the most from being located in the heart of the city. Regina Downtown is the information source for all things “downtown”. We hope to build upon our great foundation to make our downtown community the strongest and most vibrant in the city.
Regina Downtown will support the creation of a complete and sustainable neighbourhood, where entrepreneurship and cultural vitality flourish, and a diverse community of people thrive in an active, safe, accessible, inclusive, and attractive downtown district.
