History

As early as the 1720's the French inhabited the area to supply Fortress Louisbourg with coal[1]. They named the location Baie de Glace (literally, Ice Bay) because of the sea ice which filled the ocean each winter. Following the formation of the Dominion Coal Company in 1893, a number of mines were opened in what was destined to become Glace Bay. Small communities grew up around the mines and by 1901 they came together to form the Town of Glace Bay. At the time of incorporation, the population was 6,945.[2]By the 1940's, the figure exceeded 28,000 and Glace Bay became Canada's largest town (in population).[3] In its heyday, the town had 12 collieries but none remain. The industrial decline has seen the population decrease to 16,984 as of 2001[4] and has been dissolved/deincorporated since municipal amalgamation in 1995 which formed the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.

Economy

Glace Bay was once a prosperous coal mining town. In 1860 the Glace Bay Mining Company was formed and it operated two mines. The first large colliery, the Hub Shaft, opened in 1861. Large-scale mining commenced in 1893 after exclusive mining rights were granted to the Dominion Coal Company. Glace Bay was incorporated as a town nine years later. At its high point the company operated eleven mines in all, and was responsible for 40% of Canada's coal production. Coal was transported on the Sydney and Louisburg Railway to both of those ports for shipping. The S & L Railway's main operations, including the roundhouse and machine shops were located in Glace Bay. Glace Bay's extensive coal and rail operations made the town the industrial center of Cape Breton. As coal mining became less important, the mines were closed until, in 1984 Colliery No. 26 was closed by the Cape Breton Development Corporation. Many residents of Glace Bay started to work at the two other coal mines in the area: Prince Colliery in Point Aconi and Phalen Colliery and Lingan Colliery in Lingan. However, coal mining continued its decline with Lingan closing in the mid-1990s, followed by Phalen in 1999, and Prince in 2001. Surface coal mining in Wyoming. ...

Present day

The former town of Glace Bay has a population of slighly fewer than 17,000 people. The people of Glace Bay are very proud of their mining heritage and efforts continue to be made to revive the town's economy.
