2023 WC Master Plan


The Provincial Capital Commission (PCC) provides enhanced visitor experiences and educational programming in Wascana Centre and at Government House to inspire pride in Saskatchewan’s Capital City while focusing on stewardship and operating Wascana Centre.

Wascana Centre is a vast parkland space consisting of 2,300 acres (930 hectares) of urban park space, a 300-acre (120 hectares) lake, and 14.3 kilometres of paved and unpaved pathways. Wascana Centre is home to many tourist attractions, including the Legislative Building and grounds, Conexus Arts Centre, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the Saskatchewan Science Centre, the Mackenzie Art Gallery, a marina, the Trans Canada Trail, and a Habitat Conservation Area. Wascana Centre hosts approximately 400 events annually.

The Wascana Centre Master Plan provides a roadmap to guide future growth, development and sustainability in Wascana Park and beyond. The role of the master plan is to ensure that ongoing development, both landscape and institutional, furthers the founding vision of Wascana Centre. This vision, or pillars, includes the development of the Saskatchewan Legislative Grounds, the enlargement of educational research opportunities, the advancement of the cultural arts, the improvement of recreational opportunities, and the conservation of the environment and the operation of the Wascana Centre.

The original plan for the area that now includes Wascana Centre was prepared in 1913. The first master plan was prepared in 1962. The most recent update to the master plan was completed in 2016. All Wascana Centre master plans have a one-hundred-year long-term vision.

The master plan is currently up for a review and renewal. The 2023 Master Plan will be the 11th Wascana Centre Master Plan. This master plan will include ten-year conceptual deliverables, in addition to a one-hundred-year long-term vision. 

The PCC conducted a tendering process and has retained DTAH and Praxis Consulting to help update the 2016 Wascana Centre Master Plan. DTAH is an award-winning architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design firm in Toronto, who has prepared six master plans for Wascana Centre since 1982. Praxis Consulting is a local Saskatchewan firm that provides engagement expertise.

Opportunities for Input

Public and stakeholder engagement are critical components of the Wascana Centre Master Plan Review and Renewal. There are many ways to share your voice throughout the process.

The PCC policies and procedures call for the Master Plan Review and Renewal to be conducted in five stages and completed by December 2023. A Public Participation Plan has been developed. It identifies how the public and stakeholders will be engaged, the stages of the process as well as specific activities and timelines. Feedback from the public and stakeholders will be welcomed in stages one through four, with final approval being sought in stage five.
