Making Change Together

From our humble community beginnings, where coal miners and steelworkers envisioned a better life for their sons and daughters through education, to our warm, welcoming community that thrives through innovation, Cape Breton University is an economic, cultural and social hub on Cape Breton Island.

At CBU, we provide the necessary resources to create an environment that enables employees to flourish. Innovative research, exemplary teaching, collaborative community partnerships and supporting students in realizing their potential are just some of the ways we show the best of what this university, this island and this country have to offer.
