New Dawn Holdings

Cape Bretoners invest a hundred million dollars every year in RRSPs but less than 1% stays in Cape Breton. As New Dawn president Rankin MacSween puts it, first we send our money to Toronto, then we send our children.

What would happen if, instead, more of that money stayed in Cape Breton, to be invested in local projects, businesses, and community development initiatives?

New Dawn Holdings is trying to answer that question, by raising capital through an RRSP-eligible Community Economic Development Investment Fund (CEDIF) and investing in the community, continuing its legacy of helping to create “a self-reliant people in a vibrant community”.
