What Is the Bras d'Or Stewardship Society?


     The Bras d'Or Stewardship Society is a non-profit organization, established in 1998 under the laws of Nova Scotia, comprised of individuals committed to promoting accountable and responsible stewardship of the Bras d'Or Lakes and their watershed. Our goal is to promote an appropriate strategy for conservation, restoration and protection of the lakes for ourselves and future generations. Concerned individuals in the Bras d'Or and beyond are invited to join and participate in helping the Society achieve its goal. We hope to attain this objective through public meetings, newsletters, educational activities and in general, by bringing environmental issues to the attention of the general public, business and government.


The Society aims to gather ideas and scientific information relating to the lake. It provides a forum for education, co-operation and partnership among interested individuals and communities. It promotes the principles of responsible stewardship. The Society is headquartered in Baddeck although the Board of Directors hail from all parts of Cape Breton Island and mainland Nova Scotia. This executive comprises a diverse group of individuals representing a wide range of ages and expertise. Some of the fields they represent are medicine, marine biology, hydrology, aquaculture, fisheries, marina business, tourism, and retired senior management from industry and government.  The Society is involved in a variety of activities and since its inception has a number of accomplishments to its credit.  You can help the cause by becoming a member of the Society or by volunteering to assist with a project. Even at home there are many ways you can help.


Monthly meetings are held at a number of venues around the Lakes in addition an annual general meeting, generally held in March and, for the benefit of summer residents who are members of the Society, an open meeting in August with guest speaker.
