About Us

Gignoo Transition House Inc. was founded in 1992 and first opened its doors to the public in February of 1993.  It is the first and only First Nation safe house in New Brunswick that is comprised of 15 Mi’kmaq and Maliseet communities.

We are a not for profit safe haven for First Nation women and children who are experiencing domestic violence; physical, sexual, emotional, mental, spiritual and financial.

Gignoo, which means “our house” services all First Nation women and children, who are either on or off reserve, by helping them start their path to healing and eliminate the cycle of violence.
