This Ward is known to some as 3 sectors, Haute-Aboujagane, Basse-Aboujagane and Bourgeois Mills, located at the community entry point on Route 933. Several historians say that the name "Aboujagane" was derived from an aboriginal word meaning "a pearl necklace" seeing that the community’s main road goes into a circle. This community has several facilities such as a Golden Age Club, a Hunting and Fishing Club, a beautiful antique style church, a high quality golf course, a lighted sports field, a Caisse Populaire counter, a post office, a convenience store as well as the only fire hall in Beaubassin-est. Furthermore, this Ward is divided by a beautiful valley and has several natural attractions, such as the Aboujagane River, which is frequently used for recreational fishing.
