Point Tupper Header

The Point Tupper/Bearhead Industrial Park is situated near the town of Port
Hawkesbury and located on the Strait of Canso in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The
Strait is one of the world’s deepest, ice-free and dredge-free harbours.

Transportation infrastructure, a skilled and available workforce, and a strong
history of supporting heavy industries are some of the competitive advantages of
doing business in the Point Tupper/Bearhead Industrial Park.

Accessible by the Trans Canada Highway, Strait of Canso, Port Hawkesbury Airport
and the Canadian National Railway via the Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia
Railway; Point Tupper/Bearhead’s location is a major asset to companies.
