At the same time, the Fort Qu'Appelle District of the Canada Winnipeg Mission would be dissolved and the four branches of that district would be absorbed into the Regina Saskatchewan Stake. It was also planned that the two Regina wards (the Regina First Ward and the Regina Second Ward) and the two Regina branches (the Regina Third or Lamanite Branch and the Young Single Adult Branch) would be dissolved. All these units would be reorganized into four wards - the Regina Mount Pleasant Ward, the Regina Lewvan Ward, the Regina Wascana Ward and the Regina University Young Single Adult Ward.
