Sydney, Canada is situated on the eastern coast of Cape Breton Island, north-eastern Nova Scotia. Cape Breton's craggy coast has been carved through the ages by the Northumberland Strait and the Atlantic Ocean. On this remote Nova Scotia isle, picturesque valleys and massive rolling hills still harbour Gaelic speaking descendants of Acadian French and Scottish settlers.
Located in a coal-producing region of great importance, Sydney is a major industrial area and a seaport on Sydney Harbour. The community, settled in early 1780s by United Empire Loyalists, is christened in honour of British statesman Thomas Townshend, Firstst Viscount Sydney. It served as Cape Breton Island's capital between 1784-1820, and then after the isle became part of Nova Scotia Province.
In 2016, more than 82,000 cruise passengers visited Sydney AU, boosting the local economy with AUD 22,9 million. In January 2017 started the construction works on the Sydney Harbour's second cruise ship berth (read more in the terminal section below).

On January 22, 2017, started the construction of Sydney Harbour's second cruise ship berth. Works on this AUD 20 million project are expected to take up to 18 months to complete. The second berth project was equally funded by the Canadian government's all three levels (federal, provincial and municipal).
The new berth has length of 287 m (942 ft) and will allow docking of larger ships in the harbour - like Cunard's RMS Queen Mary 2. The projections are for doubling the port's cruise business.
As part of the new project, upgrades will be also done to the existing Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion.
