Situated near the mouth of the Portapique River, which flows into the Minas Basin, its economy is based mainly on farming. The name Portapique is a corruption of the Acadian word 'Porc-epic', meaning porcupine. The village was in fact named as such until the Acadians no longer lived there.

The artist Joy Laking is a well-known resident.
