The area of Windsor, Nova Scotia is in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) People first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.

Windsor’s original Mi’kmaq name is Pesaquid, which means “Junction of Waters” referring to the junction of the Avon and St. Croix Rivers at the northern boundary of the town.

Modern day Windsor is home to close to 4,000 people. It is a service centre for the western part of Hants County and is a mere 30-minute drive north west from the province’s capital city, Halifax and 45 minutes by car to Stanfield International Airport.
