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.
