WELCOME to bayside corporate

Welcome to Bayside Development Corporation, the business arm of Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation. We are a proud and progressive Mi’kmaw community in northeastern Nova Scotia with 600 on-and-off reserve members.

Located near St. George’s Bay and Antigonish Harbour, Paqtnkek has been a traditional meeting place for centuries. Fitting then, that our first commercial development – the $11 million Bayside Travel Centre – will serve travelers heading to and from Cape Breton Island and Newfoundland & Labrador!

Interested in exploring future business partnerships? We’d love to hear from you. Reach us by phone, email or our various social media platforms. Let’s talk!

the meaning behind “bayside”

The name Paqtnkek, meaning “by the bay”, is a distinction emphasizing the historic importance of the local bay and its resources to the Mi’kmaw people.
