British Empire Loyalist Cairn


The Loyalist Cairn honors Americans who sided with Britain during the American Revolution.  The monument is dedicated to the Saskatchewan pioneers of Loyalist descent who settled in the surrounding Regina area.  The United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada’s Regina branch constructed and raised the monument in 2004 and erected plaques in 2005 and 2014.  Regina branch members raised the fund and collected stones from Saskatchewan lands known to have a loyalist connection to construct the monument.  Many of the stones came from actual homesteads of Loyalist descendants.  The cairn stands on the Provincials Legislation Ground to the Northeast of the Legislative Buildings along the shore of Wascana Lake.
