A Message from the Warden

Welcome to Victoria County!

Getting an aerial view often provides previously unseen perspectives – like the breathtaking views provided by the new Atlantic Gondola atop Cape Smokey. From there, we can see what many already know – Victoria County is full of special places.


In the past few months, we have seen the challenges of Covid-19 lessening. We’ve had more visits & visitors and enjoyed spending precious time with family and friends. I encourage all to continue their efforts to stay safe and be kind to those you encounter along the way.


This autumn, why not be a tourist at home and visit some of our special places. See the upgrades along the Baddeck waterfront, the new interpretive centre under construction at the Highland Village in Iona, and the brand-new developments (and perspectives) at Ski Cape Smokey. And even though the 25th edition of Celtic Colours is all on-line again this year, get out and enjoy all that Victoria County has to offer! Crank the fiddle tunes, enjoy the colours & visit some of our gems along the way!

Access & Inclusion

Opportunities For All

Providing accessible opportunities for residents and visitors is a top priority for us at the Municipality of the County of Victoria. We have recently partnered with the Cape Breton Highlands National Park to make two of our freshwater lakes accessible to all, with the installation of two mobility mats and chairs. We are also excited to see Destination Cape Smokey opening the first Gondola in Atlantic Canada, yet another accessible, recreational activity for the area. Through partnership and collaboration we hope to increase accessible opportunities all across Victoria County. Our goal is to create a more equitable and inclusive environment for everyone to enjoy all that Victoria County has to offer.
