Richmond County is firmly focused on participating in the momentum generated by the re-emergence of Cape Breton Island as a dynamic travel destination. Working with Forerunner Creative, the county established three tourism brands to guide its tourism development strategy:

  1. Isle Madame- “Isle of 100 coves”
  2. St. Peter’s Canal- “Where the Ocean Meets the Inland Sea”
  3. Cape Breton Blueways
