The RCMP Heritage Centre welcomes Budget 2024’s further investment in establishing the National RCMP Museum that Canadians have asked for

The Government of Canada announced today, through Budget 2024: Fairness for Every Generation that it will invest in reconciliation and Prairie economic development through $1.6 million in 2024 and $1.6 million in 2025-2026 for the RCMP Heritage Centre.

$1.6 million in 2024 will assist the Heritage Centre in continuing to take meaningful steps
toward becoming a Canadian National Museum, a process started in 2019 through a
mandate letter commitment for the Minister of Canadian Heritage.

About the RCMP Heritage Centre:
Designed by the world-famous architect, Arthur Erickson, the RCMP Heritage Centre is a statuesque building that is home to the story of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This non-profit organization is located in the capital city of Regina, and neighbours the RCMP Saskatchewan headquarters and “Depot” Division. Our galleries explore over a century of RCMP history, from the formation of the North-West Mounted Police in 1873, to the modern-day Mountie. With 150 years of history to share, our staff are dedicated to providing education, reflection, and dialogue.

Visit https://rcmphc.com/ for more details about our education, programming, and events.

We acknowledge that the land on which we gather, and where the RCMP Heritage Centre is located is Treaty 4 territory, which is the traditional territory of the Anihšinābēk, Nêhiyawak, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota Peoples, and the original home of the Métis Nation. We recognize and acknowledge their culture and contributions.
