Welcome to the
Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere
The Biosphere is located on Cape Breton Island – Unama’ki, in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
It is our mission to engage all peoples in the balanced and sustainable development of the exceptional cultural, social, environmental and economic assets within the Bras d’Or Lake watershed.
We envision the Bras d’Or Lake watershed as a special place where communities are joined together in thoughtful promotion of environmental assets and responsible economic development.
