The Cape Breton Partnership commissioned A Study of the Housing Needs to Support the Growth and Sustainability of Seasonal Industries in Cape Breton (“the seasonal housing study”) in order to develop an understanding of the impacts that the lack of accommodations in the region is having on various operators and industries. The report outlines findings from significant amounts of primary and secondary research to provide a detailed view of the current state in the region. It also provides recommendations in a number of areas to mitigate the impacts of the housing shortage and outlines potential housing solutions for future implementation.
