Central Cape Breton Community Ventures Inc. has had a long standing vision to develop a marine science and education facility on the Bras d’Or Lake. The facility would take advantage of the natural scientific attributes of the Lake and its watershed and support marine research, education, and tourism initiatives. Through a MOA Cape Breton University is a stakeholder in the proposed development.
