Current MLA: Keith Bain (PC)

District profile: This district was created in the redistribution of 2003. It includes part of the former Cape Breton-The Lakes riding, which was dissolved. It includes Victoria County and part of Cape Breton County.

It's a very rural riding, stretching from Boulardrie Island in the east, skirting the Bras d'Or lakes to the village of Baddeck, and then heading north to the tip of the island.

This district is home to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the Alexander Graham Bell Museum and the Gaelic College.

The Eskasoni and the Wagmatcook First Nations also make Victoria-The Lakes home. Most people make their living from tourism, fishing or jobs in the service sector.
