Cheticamp

Chéticamp is a fishing village on the Cabot Trail on the west coast of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia at the western entrance to Cape Breton Highlands National Park which contains Acadian Trail. The downtown area overlooks a harbour that is protected from the Gulf of Saint Lawrence by Chéticamp Island. The Cheticamp River flows into the Gulf of St. Lawrence approximately 5 km. north-east of the village.Having a number of public facilities it performs a service function for the northernmost part of Inverness County. The community has almost 4,000 residents, a large majority of whom are Acadians and speak French natively. Together with its smaller neighbour, Saint-Joseph-du-Moine, Chéticamp makes up the largest Francophone enclave on Cape Breton Island. The 2006 population was 3,039 people.NameThe name "Chéticamp" derives from the name given by the Mikmaq First Nations, who still live on Cape Breton Island (but not in Chéticamp). The name is Awjátúj (Francis-Smith orthography) in the Micmac language, meaning "rarely full", presumably making reference to the mouth of Chéticamp harbor that once had a large dune that grew during low tide.
