How to reach us

Erin and Maisyn have set up a community bureau office in the Sarah Denny Cultural Centre, and will be there until May 27, 2022. They will also be working from various locations around Eskasoni. We'll let you know where they are on the CBC Cape Breton Facebook page.

Our goal is to make it easy to connect with us and have an informal chat about whatever matters most to you and what you want from CBC. 

If you'd like to book a time to chat virtually or meet with Erin or Maisyn, please email erin.pottie@cbc.ca or Maisyn.sock@cbc.ca and they will work with you to set up a time.
