Housing & Infrastructure

Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation is a vibrant, growing community.  The Department of Housing and Infrastructure is an important part of the development team, focused on the design, construction and maintenance of all band-operated buildings and band housing units.

The Department also oversees water and sewer development and maintenance, snow removal, grounds maintenance, roadway construction and maintenance, and participates in emergency management organization activities.

As Paqtnkek continues to grow and develop, the department will play an integral role in infrastructure development related to the highway development project.  This project will provide additional commercial opportunities for community members and increase housing construction with lands set aside for increased housing units to accommodate Paqtnkek’s growing families and membership.

April 1st was the new fiscal year. Anyone looking for Housing of any sort are required to fill out a new application EVERY new fiscal year.
That means if you haven’t filled out a new application in a few years, you are not being consider for housing.

ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS!!!! Our community is small enough to know who needs a home or not. Every year what makes you think someone who applied in 2022 isn’t going to be in the same situation they were in the last 5 years!! Common Paqtnkek Mi'kmaw Nation do better!! I personally can name a few people in need I’m sure we all could lol!
