Parks Canada Joint Projects


 

The mandates of Parks Canada and the Mi'kmaq Confederacy see them dealing with the representation of culture and heritage of PEI Mi’kmaq; also with the management of lands of historical and present day importance to the Mi’kmaq. Therefore, cooperation between the groups is not only desired and beneficial, it is necessary both practically and legally.
The Manager of Mi'kmaq Confederacy-Parks Canada Joint Projects works in areas that advance the mutual goals of both organizations. These include: open and frequent communication and consultation between the both groups,  and a wide variety of projects which present the Mi'kmaw history and culture of PEI and Parks Canada sites on PEI. For example, in 2013, a travelling museum exhibition entitled Ni'n na L'Nu: The Mi'kmaq of Prince Edward Island will be launched to tour North America. It is sponsored by the Mi'kmaq Confederacy with assistance from Parks Canada and prinicpal financial support from the Department of Canadian Heritage.
