Our Government Partners

Since 2003 MICA has worked with the Province of Nova Scotia, they have been a tremendous partner in our work.

In addition, the District of Lunenburg and the Municipality of Chester have supported MICA in several important acquisitions.

100% Nonprofit

MICA is a nonprofit society with charitable status that operates with a 100% volunteer Board of Directors and work teams that channel 100% of all funds towards our Mission.


Our major fundraiser, the Annual Gala Dinner and Auction, combined with the generous donations of our supporters have allowed MICA to contribute over $1.8 million towards the acquisition of Islands in service of our Mission.


Ownership of acquired islands resides with our major funding partner, the Province of Nova Scotia for all properties except for Mason’s northern end which is with the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg.


MICA’s Stewardship goal is that all island users are the island stewards. Please do your part when visiting the Islands by packing out what you packed in. Please review our basic guidelines.
