UINR represents the five Mi’kmaw communities of Unama’ki–Eskasoni, Membertou, Potlotek, Wagmatcook, and We’koqma’q – and was formed to address concerns regarding natural resources and their sustainability.
Our 3 Goals:
- To provide resources for Mi’kmaq equal participation in natural resource management in Unama’ki and its traditional territory.
- To strengthen Mi’kmaw research and natural resource management while maintaining our traditions and world views.
- To partner with other groups sharing the same desire to protect and preserve our resources for future generations.
UINR’s Board of Directors are the five Unama’ki Chiefs. Officially registered as a society in 1999, UINR had its foundation in Eskasoni Fish & Wildlife Commission.
UINR works closely with government and other First Nations organizations to meet its objectives.
