Location of Miminegash in Prince Edward Island

Miminegash is a small fishing settlement located 8 miles (13 km) NW of Alberton and 11 miles (18 km) SW of Tignish, in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. It is part of a small area known as either the St. Louis, Palmer Road, or Miminegash area. This area, if not viewed as a single settlement on its own, is often associated with Tignish due to the shared Acadian roots between these areas.


Miminegash is within 4 to 5 miles (8.0 km) of the following communities, known collectively as the St. Louis–Miminegash area. The area is a major source and processing center for Irish Moss harvested locally from the sea. Once processed into carageenan, it is used as an emulsifier or a source of gloss for things such as ice cream, chocolate milk or lipstick.
