Local Economy

Our Economic Profile

Chéticamp's economy, like most other coastal towns on Cape Breton Island, is based primarily on tourism, and the fisheries. Despite the seasonal nature of these industries, Chéticamp remains very active in the off season.

A low cost of living paired with an active and supportive community, ensures a great amount of potential for any new business endeavour. Multiple organizations exist to help you get on the right track. Contact one of them today!
