RCMP Heritage Centre

For the past 135 years, the RCMP has been an integral part of Canada's historical and cultural landscape, helping to form and protect our great nation and playing a significant role in creating the Canadian identity.

 

Prior to 1885, the North-West Mounted Police were instrumental in easing the tensions between the First Nations, Metis and the settlers that had been living in the territories for years.  They chased out the 'rum runners' and 'cattle thieves'; they settled disputes and acted as interpreters for newcomers.  During the events of 1885, the NWMP travelled the territory in defense of the new country.

 

The RCMP Heritage Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan is housed in a breathtaking stone, glass and concrete building designed by world-renowned architect Arthur Erickson.  The Centre tells the story of the RCMP using state of the art exhibits, multimedia technologies and engaging programming and tours. 

 

The RCMP Historical Collections Unit  focuses on the North-West Mounted Police's March west and the early settlement of western Canada.  The first men of the North-West Mounted Police lived an experience that is hard to imagine.  They came from a variety of backgrounds, drawn to the romance and adventure of joining a new police force that would enter unsettled territory. 

 

The Heritage Centre is open (to May 23) Monday to Friday 10:00am to 5:00pm and weekends 12:00pm to 5:00pm. May 24 to September 6 the Centre is open daily 9:00am to 6:00pm but will remain open to 9:00pm on Tuesdays in honor of the RCMP Sunset Ceremonies.
