Membertou is an urban Indigenous community, which is home to more than 1400 people.
Membertou was not always situated at its present location. One hundred years ago, Membertou (formally known as the Kings Road Reserve) was located along the Sydney Harbour. In 1916, our people were the first Indigenous peoples forcefully relocated in Canada’s History.
In 1926, The Membertou Community was officially moved to its present day location. Today, we embrace our progress and welcome the world to experience our rich and historical Mi’kmaw culture.
