St. Peters Canal Bridge Work continues to replace the St. Peters Canal swing bridge. The opening is delayed until June 15. We apologize for the inconvenience. Once open, this major bridge replacement will greatly improve the experience for thousands of visitors to, and residents of, Cape Breton Island for years to come. We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to complete this project.

Keep it safe, Keep it wild Observing wildlife can be the highlight of your visit to a national park. Here are some quick tips to stay safe and keep wildlife wild: 1. NEVER feed the wildlife – feeding wildlife in a National Park is actually illegal 2. Educate yourself about the wildlife in the park you will be visiting.   3. ALWAYS keep your dog on a leash at all times.   4. Hike during the day 5. Make noise – travel in groups. 6. Do not approach wildlife – try to stay at least 30m away from large animals and 100m away from bears – so NO SELFIES! 7. Carry bear spray when hiking and camping and know how to use it. 8. Keep a clear campsite – store all wildlife attractants (food, garbage, dishes, and toiletries) 9. Stay alert and aware of your surroundings at all times 10. Check in with Parks Canada on site for safety tips and up to date advisories
