ANNOUNCEMENTS - October 26, 2021
In addition to Residential Schools, the Indian Act, and the Sixties Scoop, the Government of Canada used the process of Centralization to isolate and disrupt Mi’kmaq communities. The Centralization Policy of 1942 sought to force Indigenous peoples to move to 2 main reservations in the province: Eskasoni and Shubenacadie. Many Mi’kmaq refused to move, and the Policy was ultimately a failure. Although Eskasoni and Sipekne'katik (formerly Shubenacadie) are the biggest, there are at least 13 thriving Mi’kmaw communities in the province.
