I am a former Cape Bretoner. It will never leave me. I love it there. Formerly from Sydney N.S. Left there to come to Ontario with frnieds. We started working here and decided to stay. Windsor is very much like home (Sydney). The people are very friendly. I came with two frnieds but they decided to go back after we were here for awhile. We were very fortunate to have a basement apartment in the home of a familywho treated us like family. As a matter of fact my mother and their mom came for a visit and stayed with us for about a month. Later I met a guy and got married. My brother came from N.S for my wedding and brought my mom and my frnieds mom up also. That was a good time for all of us. The girls were sisters and eventually decided to go back home for good. My husband and I had three children and they are here in Windsor as well. They have families of their own now and I have eight grandchildren. They are really nice. I don't see all of them as much as I would like but thats life. I keep busy with my frnieds and we really have some good times. I travel with my Son and Daughter in law. We took a trip to Chicago a few weeks ago and had a great time. Thats a place I want to go to again. There is lots to see and do there. If you never visited Cape Breton then do it. The scenery is fantastic and the people are as friendly as you will ever find anywhere. When I first came to Windsor my frnieds and I were very fortunate to have rented a basement apartment from a couple who treated us like family. So much so that after a few years they decided to take a trip down East. Of course when they got to our home town of Sydney Nova Scotia my mom insisted they not get a Hotel but instead stay with her in our home. They did not want to intrude but she insisted and they stayed for a couple of weeks. My brother Sonny made sure they saw all of Cape Breton and they just talked and talked about the Hospitality of the people there. It was the best holiday ever for them and they truly loved their trip around the Cabot Trail and Cheticamp as well as every where they went. Myself and my roommates were elated when they were showing pictures and telling stories about all the great times they had. They felt right at home in Sydney and in the house where I used to live. My Mom has passed on and so have they but I will always remember how great they treated myself and my two frnieds.
Susan, your experience rdnmies me of a family from the States that wanted to move to Cape Breton, it took them a number of years to get their Visa. The husband ended up applying for a grant through ECBC to start a wood-working business. That granted him a Visa and they moved to Cape Breton. Many people also retire in Cape Breton from all around the world. Hope it works out for you!Take care,Isaac
