About Cape Breton

Cape Breton Island’s story is told in many ways. It’s etched in her craggy cliffs. Written in the trails that marble her face. Spoken in four languages and celebrated in her music and dance. Alive in the millennia-old history of Unama’ki—Cape Breton Island’s true name, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People.

To know our Island is to know she’s an unyielding beauty, one which breeds a fierce spirit, resolute pride, and resilient communities knit together by tradition. Pjila’si, Cíad Míle Fáilte, Bienvenue—welcome to a place loved by many and home to a lucky few.
