Cape George (Scottish Gaelic: Ceap Sheòrais) is a headland and community of the same name located Antigonish County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

It defines the northwestern limit of St. George's Bay.

"The Cape", as it is commonly referred to by the locals, has strong Irish, Scottish and British roots and is a large hub for the Nova Scotia lobster and tuna fishing industry.

This is one of two capes named "Cape George" in Nova Scotia. The other is 85 kilometres (53 mi) away on the south shore of Bras d'Or Lake on Cape Breton Island and also has a lighthouse.
