The Cape Breton Regional Enterprise Network was established by the Province of Nova Scotia through the Department of Municipal Affairs, and encompasses Victoria, Richmond, and Inverness counties.

It is overseen by a board of directors and is administered by the Cape Breton Partnership. Funding is provided by each of the three municipal units and the provincial government.

The network’s primary goals are to support the development and attraction of new businesses, and the retention and expansion of existing businesses.

Staff are based across the region in Baddeck, Port Hood, Inverness and St. Peter’s.
