Wolastoqey Nation
in New Brunswick


We strive to provide technical advice to Wolastoqey leadership and Resource Development Consultation Coordinators (RDCCs) in resource development consultation matters that relate to the implementation and exercise of Wolastoqey constitutionally protected rights. WNNB aspires to protect and promote traditional lands, ceremony, cultural practices, and language.

Consultation matters reviewed by WNNB include those issues that may affect land and natural resources (e.g., water, fish, wildlife, trees, plants, wetlands, minerals), archaeology and commercial interests relating to natural resources (e.g., forestry and commercial fisheries).

The Maliseet Nation in New Brunswick (MNNB) received its Certificate of Incorporation in April 2017 and changed its name to Wolastoqey Nation in New Brunswick (WNNB) in July 2017. WNNB consists of Madawaska Maliseet First Nation, Tobique First Nation, Kingsclear First Nation, St. Mary’s First Nation and Oromocto First Nation.
