About our Riding

Welcome to the Sydney - Victoria Conservative Association. We are the local electoral district association for the Conservative Party of Canada. Our constituency represents approximately 72,000 hard-working Cape Bretoners, and includes the communities of Sydney, New Waterford, North Sydney, Sydney Mines, Eskasoni, Baddeck, and Ingonish, among many others.

Our riding is known for its amazing natural beauty, rich natural and human history, and our friendly people. We are home to the Cabot Trail, the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, several top-ranked golf courses, and the world’s largest fiddle. Historically, people here have been employed in the coal and steel industries. In more recent times, tourism has become our major industry.


Our Conservative Association is guided by the following objectives set out in our constitution: 

  • Supporting and promoting the principles, objectives and policies of the Party and maintaining an effective Association for that purpose.

  • Providing organizational and financial support to the Party’s candidate or Member of Parliament in our Riding.

  • Raising money and maintaining a fund to support the Association and assist candidates.

  • Actively identifying potential supporters and recruiting new members.

  • Encouraging the participation and recruitment of youth.

Our volunteer Board of Directors represents our Conservative Association with the goal of continued representation for the Conservative Party of Canada in our riding. We receive our mandate from the membership and are elected by the membership at the annual AGM to achieve the objectives of the Association.
