About MAARS








Regional Community


The communities of off-reserve Aboriginal Peoples throughout the Maritimes organized their community Councils to have a collective voice to the councils of governments and to work to improve the social and economic situation of family and community. The dignity, continuum, merit, capacity and worth as the Aboriginal Peoples of the Federation of the Peoples of Canada, would be realized in partnership and respect.

The three Aboriginal Peoples Representative Organization Community Councils in the region are each organized with community zones and locals. These community zones have the larger population of Mi'Kmaq, Malecite, Passamaquoddy/Aboriginal Peoples in the Maritime Region of Canada. The population map below details the MAARS partners' organized community zone populations in the Maritime Region.
