Our Mandate:

The Benoit First Nation mandate is one of integrity, respect, honour, selflessness, dedication, humility and through a Truth and Reconciliation lens. We provide Mi'kmaq community services, cultural and traditional programming, infrastructure building, language vitalization, job creation, indigenous history and heritage, elder support, food security for vulnerable households and we do this in a balance with our traditional lands and ecosystem.

We are building our communities and educate our children exposing them to our true Mi'kmaq history.

We are also working to help with regional elderly support as well as food security for vulnerable households.

"Kluskap and the great Creator teaches us to stay humble. Let them give you the wisdom of the ages and guide you on the path of respect and humility."
