Cape Breton Correctional Facility


The Cape Breton Correctional Facility (CBCF) opened its doors in February 1975. This medium-security facility has a maximum capacity of 96 adult male offenders and a staffing complement of 102 employees.

This facility also operates, as needed, a four-bed dorm for adult women and a six-bed temporary detention facility for youth. Women and youth are only housed in these temporary accommodations when attending court in Sydney or while awaiting transfer to the women's unit at the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility of the Nova Scotia Youth Facility respectively.
