Amanda MacDougall

Councillor - District 8, Cape Breton Regional Municipality

Amanda is closing in on her first year as Councillor with the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. This position has offered Amanda amazing insight into community needs across the municipality and allows her to work with groups and organizations to find creative to solutions that help our cities, towns and villages grow. For Amanda one of the biggest issues we face here on Cape Breton Island is population decline and her work through the Rural-Urban Immigration Pilot of Cape Breton at CBU introduced her to the ways in which immigration can mitigate this decline.

Amanda calls the stunning fishing of Main-a-Dieu home where she is surrounded by family, friend and her furry housemates.
