Lennox Island is an island located in Malpeque Bay off the northwest coast of Prince Edward Island, Canada. Connected by a short causeway and bridge, Lennox Island is home to the Lennox Island First Nation,[1] of the Mi'kmaq people.[2] The Mi'kmaq name for the island was L'nui Minegoo, and it has been informally known by European settlers as Indian Island.

The historic St. Anne Catholic Mission is located on the island.[3]

The Minigoo Fishery (located on Lennox Island) was the first Lobster processing plant owned and operated by indigenous people in Canada in 2010.[4] It later closed its doors[5] and sought bankruptcy protection. It reopened in May 2013.[6]
