History

This riding was created in 1903 as "North Cape Breton and Victoria"' riding from Cape Breton and Victoria ridings.

It consisted initially of the county of Victoria, the northern part of the County of Cape Breton: the districts of Boisdale, Boularderie, East Bay (North), French Vale, George's River, Grand Narrows, and Little Bras d'Or, and the towns of North Sydney and Sydney Mines.

In 1924, its name was changed to "Cape Breton North—Victoria", and then to "Cape Breton North and Victoria" in 1933. It was redefined to consist of the county of Victoria, and that part of the county of Cape Breton contained in the municipal districts of Balls Creek and Edwardsville (No. 2), Big Pond (No. 13), Boisdale (No. 9), Boularderie (No. 10), East Bay North (No. 19), East Bay South (No. 8), Enon (No. 21), Frenchvale (No. 22), George's River (No. 23), Grand Narrows (No. 14) and Little Bras d'Or (No. 4), and including the towns of Sydney Mines and North Sydney.

In 1947, the riding was expanded to include the municipal districts of Hillside (No. 3), and South Forks (No. 18).

It was abolished in 1966 when it was redistributed into Cape Breton Highlands—Canso, Cape Breton—East Richmond and Cape Breton—The Sydneys ridings.
