Hello brothers and sisters of Gespe’gewa’gi. I’m Tanya Barnaby, the newly appointed Executive Director of the Mi’gmawei Mawiomi Secretariat. I’ve been in the Executive Director position since August 2016 however, I have been working for the MMS since the doors opened in 2001. I’ve worked in the research unit, built the consultation and accommodation unit from the ground up and then worked as the Director of Ango’tmeg Nm’tginen, the unit responsible for the land and marine use plan.

Through the pages of this website, you will get a glimpse into the work of the organization. The work we do in the various sectors comes from the direction we receive from the Mi’gmawei Mawiomi which is the assembly of the elected leaders of the three Mi’gmaq communities; Gesgapegiag, Gespeg and Listuguj.

Please take the time to browse our great and new website, which we are very proud of the contribution our team has made to its creation. Come back often to keep you informed about our various activities throughout the year. Also, if you would like to chat with me about anything to do with MMS, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Here is a copy of the Hydrocarbons survey that we’ve been conducting in the communities since October.

If you haven’t had a chance to fill out this survey, Audrey Isaac (Listuguj), Nicholas Jerome (Gesgapegiag) and Nancy Jalbert (Gespeg) are available to conduct this survey with you.

Just contact Erika Barnaby at 418.788.1760 or by email at [email protected] to set up an appointment.
