About

PJILA’SI!

Welcome to the beautiful community of We'koqma'q

Nestled along the Bras d’Or Lakes, We’koqma’q is located in the middle of Unama’ki (Cape Breton Island), one of the districts of Mi’kma’ki (Atlantic Canada), the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.

Seen from above, the landscape shows valley grooves connecting to the Bras d’Or Lake, Canada’s largest inland sea. Eagles soar high above the trees, getting ready to make a catch in the nearby waters.

A rapidly growing Mi’kmaw community, economic and social development remains a priority as Chief and Council work to enhance our natural attributes. Our residents show great pride in their culture and tradition.
