Overview

Visit us in Southeast Cape Breton, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bras d’Or Lake, an inland sea and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Located on the St. Peter’s Canal National Historic Site, Canal Landing was once home to Nicholas Denys’ trading post where early settlers traded with the Mi’kmaq.

We promote the multicultural relationship between Potlotek First Nation and St. Peter’s through a range of cultural excursions, water activity equipment rentals, and a canteen/hamburger stand.

Be sure to check out the Heart of Mi’kma’ki gift shop for authentic local-made crafts to take home as a souvenir!
