Ugpi’ganjig is situated on the northeastern coast of New Brunswick on unceded traditional Migma’gi territory. We are blessed with scenic views of one of the most beautiful bays in the world and the longest natural sand bar links us to our neighbouring communities. We believe that collaborating with our surrounding municipalities is nation-building for the greater good of our region. We maintain good relationships with our fellow First Nations, provincial and federal partners are we strive to incorporate the 7 teachings in our everyday lives as we cohabitate Mi’gmagi.
