About Cape Breton

Cape Breton – Unama’ki is an island located just east of the mainland of Nova Scotia and is part of the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) People first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.

Cape Breton-Unama’ki was ranked as the number one Island in North America in 2020 by Condé Nast Traveler Readers and offers not only a great place to visit, but a great place to call home. With excellent schools, recreation, culture, the beauty of the ocean and friendly and welcoming people, Cape Breton – Unama’ki provides excellent quality of life and all the benefits of an east coast lifestyle.
