                 Welcome to the Mi'kmaq Confederacy of PEI

 

Working together to improve the lives of

Mi’kmaq on Prince Edward Island, now and in the future.

 

 The Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI (MCPEI) is a common forum for the two PEI First Nations to address outstanding issues related to Aboriginal and treaty rights. It is a tribal council and provincial territorial organization (PTO) governed by a Board of Directors with membership from the band councils of Abegweit and Lennox Island First Nations. 
 
MCPEI promotes knowledge and understanding of Mi’kmaq rights by conducting research, developing and implementing initiatives, and building relationships necessary to resolve issues in a cooperative manner.  It provides a common forum for the two First Nations of PEI (Abegweit and Lennox Island First Nations), and is the unified voice for the advancement of Treaty and Aboriginal rights.   

 

MCPEI is guided by the following core values: 

Respect: we honour and value the diverse viewpoints and beliefs of all individuals, and promote collaborative relationships that are based on trust, understanding and acceptance.  

Tradition: we strengthen, promote, preserve and protect Mi’kmaw culture, beliefs and heritage for current and future generations.

Excellence: we are committed to developing, delivering and maintaining services of the highest quality.

Integrity: we are dedicated to ethical and professional conduct in all aspects of our activities, practices and interactions.

Sensitivity: we are compassionate, mindful and understanding of others’ feelings and circumstances; and will conduct ourselves in a way that is encouraging and supportive.

 

MCPEI Vision Statement

PEI Mi’kmaq are self-determined and self-sufficient; and the Mi’kmaw community is understood, prosperous, safe and culturally vibrant.
