New Year's Day Levee

The New Year’s Day Levee is a tradition that began on January 1, 1884 when Lieutenant Governor Edgar Dewdney held the first New Year’s Day Levee in Saskatchewan.  

Everyone is welcome to join Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield on January 1st from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Government House, located at 4607 Dewdney Avenue in Regina. 

The Levee is free of charge.  Guests have an opportunity to exchange New Year's greetings with the Lieutenant Governor, enjoy refreshments and entertainment.

Celebrating the flag

This year’s Levee will mark the 50th Anniversary of Canada’s flag.  There will be flag pins, unique maple leaf cookies, and a visit from Salut, the Canadian Maple Leaf mascot.  Guests are invited to post their selfie with Salut on the Lieutenant Governor's Facebook  page at

Children's Crafts

New this year, children will be able to create a Victorian Calling Card and a Christmas Cracker full of treats.

In the Victorian era, people used calling cards to introduce themselves to new friends. Present your calling card to the Lieutenant Governor’s Aide-de-Camp, who will introduce you to Her Honour.


Free parking will be provided at EVRAZ Place at the Lewvan Drive entrance.  A free shuttle service will run frequently between the EVRAZ parking lot and Government House.
