Dominion, Nova Scotia

Dominion, Nova Scotia

Dominion (2001 pop. 2,142) is a community in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.

It is located immediately west of the larger centre of Glace Bay.

Founded in 1906, Dominion got its name from the local Dominion Coal Company and owed its birth to the coal mining industry as did many of the local communities. Coal was king, and remnants of many old mine workings still run under the town. The local high school, MacDonald High, sank slightly into one of these mine workings and had to be subsequently torn down.
