Eskasoni – Pjila’si – Welcomes You

We’kwistoqnik, translated to “where the fir trees are plentiful,” is a Mi’kmaw community nestled alongside the beautiful Bras d’Or Lakes in Eastern Cape Breton. Eskasoni is dedicated to improving the lives of its future generations and strives to be culturally rich and respectful of its ecosystem, based on the concept of shared responsibility. First established in 1832, there were only a few families living in the area. Today, Eskasoni is the largest Aboriginal community east of Montreal with more than 4,000 residents.
