Canso Causeway connects Chedabucto Bay to Northumberland Strait. The Strait of Canso separates Cape Breton Island from the mainland of Nova Scotia and the causeway bridges the gap. A canal connects two bodies of water when one body of water is higher than the other. The Canso Canal uses a tidal lock consisting of two sets of gates, to compensate for the difference in water levels. Along the Canso Canal is a pedestrian causeway used for walking, sightseeing and for shore fishing.
