The Cape Breton Business Hall of Fame was established in 2002 to honour individuals from the Cape Breton business community who paved the road for future generations in Cape Breton through business achievement and community involvement. In 2016 the mandate of the gala evening was broadened to recognize prominent representatives of both the business and philanthropy communities.

Special thanks to our sponsors who make the Gala such a success most notably our presenting sponsor Sydney Credit Union.
