About Us

Destination Cape Breton is the official Destination Marketing and Management Organization for Cape Breton Island.


An incorporated non-profit society, DCB’s mandate is to grow Cape Breton’s tourism industry through destination marketing and tourism product innovation.


Destination Cape Breton is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of 15 members, including:

  • One representative from each of the Island’s five municipalities
  • One representative of each of the Island’s three main cultures (Mi’kmaq, Acadian, and Gaelic)
  • Five members at large that represent industry and key stakeholders
  • Two non-voting observers representing the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and Develop Nova Scotia

Board meetings are held bi-monthly and meeting locations rotate among the municipalities on the Island.
