Ensuring a Sustainable Future

Cape Breton University is at a turning point. New infrastructure is critical for ensuring our future viability and enhancing our competitive advantage in domestic and international markets

The existing science building is more than 50 years old and cannot support CBU’s growing student body or the advances in research and innovation of faculty. As the largest energy user per square metre on campus, it is a threat to the institution’s long-term sustainability. The time has come to replace it with a net-zero emissions, fully accessible campus and community hub.

With your support, the CDI will house state-of-the-art research and instructional facilities that propel scientific inquiry, advance discovery, and expedite local solutions for global problems. Featuring the latest in green technology and digital infrastructure, it will elevate Cape Breton Island as a national destination for research and a global destination for students.
