Cheticamp business district, seen from Cheticamp Island. Although not officially
a town, the community has all the things you might expect to find in a small town...
post office, stores, bakery, pubs and restaurants, banks, schools, church, museums,
arena, sports field, etc. Fishing and tourism are the main industries. You will also find
many businesses that cater to the accommodation and entertainment of tourists.
While French is the language of choice, the community is bi-lingual, even tri-lingual for
some because a few of the nearest communities are of Scottish heritage and Gaelic is
spoken. Cheticamp is also the gateway to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
