800px-Cape Breton Island


This was a senior hockey league that ran on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. It operated under the authority of the Maritimes Amateur Hockey Association and the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association.

It ran in 1926-27, from 1933-34 to 1942-43, and from 1945-46 to 1949-50. In 1950-51 it became, for one season, the Cape Breton Major Hockey League before folding with Glace Bay and Sydney joining the Maritime Major Hockey League.

The league was ressurected in 1956 and operated until it folded at the end of the 1964-65 season. This version of the league collapsed in December of 1964 and what teams remained played an independent schedule for the rest of the season.

Its teams were eligible for the Allan Cup.
