Cape Breton Island, situated on the east coast of North America, is a region well-positioned for new economic opportunities and transformational change. Home to Novaporte, a 2,000+ acre greenfield port development, and some of the windiest waters in the world, the Island is perfectly poised for generational transformation.
Cape Breton Island, with its green hills, rugged mountains, and towering shoreline, is reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands, or the rugged coast of Northern Ireland. It is a place of stunning beauty, named by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine as one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world.
Located in Nova Scotia, Canada, the island is of proud Mi’kmaq heritage, populated by settlers of the infamous Highland Clearances and the Great Irish Famine. It is an island that has experienced its share of booms and busts. Home to the great Fortress of Louisbourg, it was once one of the busiest harbours on the eastern seaboard and a center for the cod fisheries from the 18th century onward.
