Physicians and their families build rewarding lives and careers in Cape Breton; see for yourself, here! 

    It is in convenient proximity to all the major attractions on the Island like the world famous Cabot Trail, Fortress of Louisbourg, the Alexander Graham Bell Museum in the beautiful village of Baddeck, and 6 amazing golf courses! You will find an island of magnificent natural beauty yet very modern. We have a full array of shops, restaurants, services, entertainment and amenities. In addition, the region remains young and vibrant as it is home to Cape Breton University.

    Music is a large part of our Scottish cultural background. Sydney is surrounded by many smaller communities, each one offering its own uniqueness to an interested person. Here, kitchen parties are a way of life and you’re never too far from the beautiful Highlands that inspired the region’s first immigrants to name the province New Scotland. You will experience the view of a lifetime around every corner, and surround yourself with the friendliest people in every community. Hike, cycle, swim, golf – all in an almost unreal beauty.
