A word from the mayor

As Mayor of Shigawake it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our municipality`s website. I invite you to discover all the natural beauty and friendly folk that Shigawake has to offer. 

We have many picturesque areas of which to boast; including the walking trail to the Beach, a rustic campsite area, the playground , all located at the Shigawake Log Cabin. Also for the more adventurous, a nature trail leading to our very own waterfall located in the heart of Shigawake’s deep forest.

Every year in the month of August, the Bonaventure Agricultural Society hosts a Fair & Music Festival at the Shigawake Fairgrounds which is wonderful event for all ages. As you enter Shigawake, you will be greeted with a variety of wild flowers, most-notedly Lupins which grow all through the town. A spacious Community Center is available for rent for your special occasions holding approximately 150 to 200 people and is equipped with a kitchen and serving area for your convenience. Enjoy! We look forward to your visit!
