Pabineau Falls

Welcome to Pabineau First Nation

Our proud Mi’kmaq First Nation is a small community situated approximately 8 kilometres south of the City of Bathurst, New Brunswick. We have 345 registered band members and a land base of 1,053 acres.

Driving through Pabineau First Nation, along the nepisiguit river, is one of the most beautiful natural wonders of northern New Brunswick, Pabineau Falls.

Each 2nd weekend in July we celebrate our heritage and culture with an annual free Pow-wow. The public is welcome to join the festivities.

If you are hungry, the Pabineau Seafood restaurant is a well-established community-based and licenced restaurant that specializes in fresh seafood dinners.

Don’t worry if you need gas, we have the Pabineau Gas Bar and Smoke Shop available to you.

If hiking is what you are into, we have hiking trails for you.
The Oasapegal Heritage Park is situated on Pabineau Falls Road.  The Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail has been established to provide a wilderness hiking experience.

Don’t forget to drop by and see, the largest of its kind in the Province of New Brunswick, the Counting Fence/Streamside Fertilization. it is designed to provide crucial, ground level research to maintaining and enhancing our understanding of the rate of return of wild Atlantic Salmon.

If you are in need of some convenience store items, go visit Pabineau Pow Wow Store.

Pabineau First Nation and Natural Forces has secured a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement with NB Power.

Pabineau First Nation and the city of Bathurst signed a municipal services agreement for our Vanier Development which will grow the economy of Northern New Brunswick.
