Nevertheless, the university is far more culturally diverse than the surrounding community.

The Cape Breton Flight Institute (CBFI) is preparing for take-off. The institute is looking forward to welcoming its first group of students from China. Situated on the grounds of the Sydney airport, CBFI recently signed a contract with a private Chinese flight school to provide their students with commercial pilot licence training. Upon completion of training at CBFI students return home for the additional instruction needed to receive a Chinese aviation pilot licence.
