P.E.I.’s Mi’kmaq community will soon have a new place to gather, access services, and showcase culture.
Work is well underway on the new Urban Indigenous Centre on the Charlottetown waterfront. The three-story building will be home to Mi’kmaq Confederacy of P.E.I. offices, the new Mi’kmaq rights-based organization called L’Nuey, as well as space on the ground floor for front-line services, artisans, and possibly more.
“We always wanted to have our own space. So this idea is not a new idea, it’s something that’s been in the works with the leadership for a number of years,” said Darlene Bernard, Chief of Lennox Island First Nation.
