Lennox Island, a 540-hectare island located in Malpeque Bay off the northwest coast of Prince Edward Island, Canada. Connected by a short causeway and bridge, Lennox Island is home to 450 Lennox Island First Nation band members. Lennox Island First Nation has in total 1056 band members, many of which live off reserve. There are four main businesses here, the Lennox Island Development Corporation, Bideford Shellfish Hatchery, Fisherman’s Pride, and Malpek Cannabis/Tmawey Smoke Shop. They are also home to a community owned thrift shop, health centre, elementary school, church, craft shop, cultural centre, daycare, and a brand-new fire hall. Culturally, they have nature trails to help community members and visitors reconnect with nature, blueberry fields and the beginnings of our green house project. As well as a women’s shelter, sweat lodge, Aboriginal Women’s Association PEI head office, and our wonderful ceremonial Mawi’omi grounds.
You’ll arrive looking for knowledge, and with all these opportunities, you’ll leave with a full heart and a new understanding of the beautiful rich culture, history and traditions of the Mi’kmaq on PEI.
