Pjila’si ● Welcome
Quality, convenience, and comfort await you in Membertou.
Named after Grand Chief Membertou, our community of Membertou is located within its tribal district of Unama’ki (Cape Breton). It is one of five Mi’kmaw communities in Cape Breton and one of thirteen in the province of Nova Scotia.
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.
