Cape Breton Welcome Network
The Cape Breton Welcome Network is a constellation of local, volunteer-led Welcome Groups made up of enthusiastic people eager to share their passion for Cape Breton – Unama’ki with newcomers.
If you are new to Cape Breton – or if you’d like to help welcome those who are – the Welcome Network is a great place to start.
About the Cape Breton Welcome Network
Launched in 2020, the Cape Breton Welcome Network is designed to support Cape Breton communities do one of the things they do best: welcome. The Network is comprised of a growing number of Welcome Groups around the Island and led by enthusiastic community volunteers. These volunteer Welcomers are people who have a welcoming spirit, are open-minded and respectful of diverse cultural backgrounds, passionate and knowledgeable about their communities and eager to share with newcomers all the great local activities and hidden gems.
The welcoming activities of each group are different – customized to best suit each community and each newcomer. Common activities might include: a welcoming phone call, meeting for coffee, delivering welcome baskets, offering community tours.
Connect with a welcome group today!
