About Community

Today, Eskasoni takes pride in who they are and how far they've gotten. Eskasoni is the largest Aboriginal community in all of Atlantic Canada. Deeply rooted within Eskasoni is the Mi'kmaq culture. Eskasoni is the largest Mi'kmaq speaking community in the world with close ties to Cape Breton Gaelic and French traditions. The community of Eskasoni has a young population and has a proud history of supporting its young population with events that promote a healthy and active lifestyle.

Chief Leroy Denny's Message

We have made great strides in developing a solid infrastructure on which to grow and prosper including our own community-operated school system from kindergarten to grade 12, supermarket, community rink and cultural centre. We also have a large private-sector base.
