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 travellers 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!
