Perhaps Barry Sears may be able to assist, since there is a Cape Breton Tune in there

Matt MacIsaac from Cape Breton informs me that there are no pipe tunes to speak of that anyone would consider an anthem, but “Rock in the Stream” by the Barra MacNeils is as close to a Cape Breton anthem as you’d get. “My Love, Cape Breton, and Me” is another.

One other suggestion is The Island Song aka Ryans Fancy

"Cape Breton Anthem" is The Island by The Barra MacNeills:

"A Place to Stand, A Place to Grow" celebrates Ontario:

Neither is a GHB composition, so you'll probably have to transcribe them yourself.

Actually there is a Cape Breton anthem in the form of a Gaelic song composed by Dan Alex MacDonald:
Oran do Cheap Breatainn
'S e Ceap Breatanin, tir mo Ghràidh
"Cape Breton is the land of my love, we deem it the most beautiful on earth"

I used to play it on the pipes at milling frolics in Cape Breton. It was always considered the Gaelic anthem of Cape Breton,
