Charlottetown, PEI

The Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI congratulates Richard Guimond on his success in the Lennox Island First Nation Band Council By-election held on Saturday, February 10.

“On behalf of the Confederacy, I would to like congratulate Richard on his election to Council,” said Don MacKenzie, Executive Director. “We also welcome him to the Board of the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI.”

“I look forward to working with Councillor Guimond and the entire Lennox Island Band Council as we seek improved outcomes for the Mi’kmaq people of Prince Edward Island,” said MacKenzie.

The Lennox Island First Nation Band Council and the Abegweit First Nation Band Council are the two Mi’kmaq Governments on Prince Edward Island, which are the official representatives of all PEI Mi’kmaq. The two Band Councils also form the Board of Directors of the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI.

The By-Election for the On-Reserve Councillor position was held following the death of Councillor Gerry Thomas last November.
