Cape Breton Nova is a former provincial electoral district in Nova Scotia, Canada which existed between 1956-2013. It elected one member to the Nova Scotia House of Assembly. In its last configuration, the district included the northern parts of Sydney including Whitney Pier, as well as a small area of Cape Breton County, all within the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.

The electoral district was abolished following the 2012 electoral boundary review and was largely replaced by the new electoral district of Sydney-Whitney Pier.
