COVID-19 Resources

The impact of COVID-19 around the world has been unprecedented, and with its arrival here at home, our main priority continues to be the health and wellness of our employees, clients and community.  Our hope is that Cape Bretoners are able to take the necessary precautions and focus on staying healthy and safe at this time.

The Cape Breton Partnership focuses on connecting people from any industry or sector to the supports and resources they need to succeed.  We know that right now, this is more important than ever to our business community across the island. Click here for a message from our President & CEO, Carla Arsenault, on the ongoing efforts of the Cape Breton Partnership during this time.

Nova Scotia is officially entered Phase 4 of its Reopening Plan on Wednesday, July 14, 2021.

That means further restrictions are being eased in our province, including increasing capacity for restaurants and businesses as well as group gathering limits.

Each phase is based on COVID-19 activity, public health and testing capacity, hospitalizations and vaccination rates. Phases are expected to last between two and four weeks as long as certain criteria are met in these areas.
