Alicia Moffat


Agnutmatesnu Coordinator

Alicia started working for the three communities, as the Project Assistant for the Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n Wind Farm for MMBC in 2014. There, Alicia was responsible for coordinating the hiring of 100 Mi’gmaq workers for the project. She also co-coordinated the ground-breaking and the inauguration ceremony. Alicia remained part of the project until 2016 and left shortly afterwards to have a baby. In 2018, she returned to the MMS as the Executive Assistant to the Executive Director. After a year in that position, she transitioned to the negotiations team. In July 2019, Alicia changed roles again when she became the Agnutmatesnu Coordinator. The work of the negotiations team is always evolving, which makes the work exciting and always interesting. Alicia holds a Foundations Visual Arts Certificate from the New Brunswick School of Craft and Design (2015).

Alicia’s honoured to have worked for the 3 Mi’gmaq communities for the last 9 years. She feels privileged to work in a unique field that focuses on the protection of our territory and our Aboriginal rights. She understands the importance of the Secretariat’s mandates and how they could impact the next generations to come.

Alicia is very enthusiastic about ensuring future generations are proud of who they are, have a full understanding of the challenges our people face, and how to continue to overcome those adversities. It is particularly important to Alicia to be a positive role model for Mi’gmaq girls and women so that collectively, we can be strong and passionate.

When asked to describe herself in 5 words or less, Alicia said she is motivated, positive, a team player, adaptable, and … fashionable! Alicia loves music and being on the river, and spending her time with her children, Veyda and Phoenix, and their super-puppy, Molly.
