URegina welcomes more than 500 evacuees from northern SK communities


The University of Regina is set to welcome more than 500 evacuees from communities impacted by the ongoing wildfires in northern Saskatchewan; specifically, from Buffalo Narrows and the surrounding communities of La Loche and Île-à-la-Crosse. 47 evacuees have already arrived and are being sheltered in a URegina building. Global News reports that URegina’s action is the result of an agreement signed with the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency last year, in which the university committed to providing “mutual aid and humanitarian support in the event of a provincial emergency.”
