Entrepreneurship. Innovation. Opportunity.
We are Enactus Regina
Enactus Regina is an award-winning entrepreneurship and social innovation club at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada. As a student driven organization, we encourage youth to research novel solutions to humanitarian issues, start social enterprises, and host educational or empowering events. Our accomplishments include successfully lobbying the Government of Saskatchewan to enact a high school financial literacy curriculum, the creation of a national award winning financial technology startup, and the successful prototyping of an accessibility rig for disabled photographers. We have been the annual host of Regina's Prince's Operation Entrepreneur boot-camp for the last seven years. Our current work includes the development of a city-wide food diversion network and urban farm, creation of Canada's first incubator for accessibility innovation, and the implementation of an entrepreneurship micro-curriculum for high school students. We are always looking to expand our social impact, such as by onboarding new projects or recruiting innovative student members.

Fifo is the first student-led financial technology startup in the Province of Saskatchewan. In the past, the Fifo team has helped successfully lobby the Government of Saskatchewan to enact a mandatory provincial high school personal finance curriculum, impacting tens of thousands of youth. For these efforts, Fifo has won multiple awards across Canada. The team is currently developing a cutting edge application that will revolutionize the financial industry by introducing a novel set of financial literacy tools for the public. The project is led by Salmaan Moolla.
Sask Masks' mission is two fold: to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and to support the community. The team is making handmade reusable cloth masks and donating the net proceeds to local charities like Carmichael Outreach, the YWCA, and the Regina Food Bank. To date, Sask Masks has produced over 6,000 masks and donated over $46,000 to charities in need. The project is led by Jana Ham, Robyn Ham, Ryan Selinger, and Jordan Tholl.
Prince's Operation Entrepreneur
Prince's Operation Entrepreneur is a national program managed by Enactus teams in collaboration with Prince's Trust Canada. The program is a week long bootcamp that invites veterans from across the country to Regina and teaches them skills related to creating a new business. POE's primary goal is to support veterans in transitioning to civilian life. Over one hundred veterans have taken part in the program hosted by Enactus Regina over a period of eight years. The project was most recently led by Talha Babar and Levi Perrault.
Readapt is an accessibility innovation organization that seeks to close ability gaps for disabled people via volunteerism and social innovation. Readapt's flagship project is a digital search engine where users will be able to input their disability and receive a curated list of lifehacks to adapt to barriers they may face. This program will be integrated with a global knowledge mobilization network of innovators working to design, prototype, and assemble new accessibility devices for unclosed gaps. The team has notably developed the world's first DSLR camera accessibility rig as part of its innovation portfolio. Readapt hopes to eventually establish the first global accessibility innovation incubator in the world. The project is led by Arslan Azeem.
Garbage Gone is an environmental startup that specializes in building interactive, artistic, and gamified disposal bins that are integrated with smart city components. The team incorporates human psychology in its design process so the bins have an added social benefit of decreasing littering rates in areas with high foot traffic or vulnerable habitats. Garbage Gone is also developing an internet network integration into its smart bins, which will allow the team to track the usage and metrics of the bins in live time via an internal dashboard. In the long term, the team hopes to create a complimentary public facing application that will reward users for utilizing its smart bins. The project is led by Arslan Azeem and Shawn Fernandes.
Feedbank is a sustainability initiative that aims to reduce food waste from the University of Regina campus and redistribute food to people in need throughout the city. The project focuses on the second United Nations sustainable development goal, which is zero hunger. The project will expand city wide and be a connection point between major vendors and local organizations. Along with food diversion, Feedbank has partnered with You Should Garden, a sustainable gardening project, to divert fresh produce from community gardens and eventually create community gardens of their own. The project is led by Tinsae Alemu and Noor Tajik.
Enactus Regina is extremely competitive at Enactus Canada's annual Western Canada and National Expositions.
