Inscription. English:
The Margaree-Lake Ainslie River System, the largest on Cape Breton Island, includes the Margaree River, the Northeast and Southwest Margaree Rivers, and Lake Ainslie. From its origins in the Cape Breton Highlands, it rushes through steep river gorges and meanders by farmlands and villages on its route to the sea. Renowned for is scenery, its Atlantic salmon and trout angling heritage and traditional gaspereau fishery, designation as a Canadian Heritage River is testimony to the significance of the Margaree-Lake Ainslie System as a national treasure and to the stewardship of the people of the Margaree.

French:
Le réseau fluvial Margaret-Lac Ainslie, le plus long sur l’ile Cap-Breton, comprend la rivière Margaree, les rivières Margaree du Nord-Est et du Sud-Ouest et lac Ainslie. À partier de sa source dans les Hautes-Terres du Cap-Breton, la rivière descend impétueusement vers des gorges profondes en suivant un cours sinueux; elle traverse des terres agricoles et plusieurs villages avant de se jeter dans la mer. Renommée pour ses abords pittoresques, elle demeure un endroit idéal pour la pêche à la truite et au saumon de l’Atlantique, sans oublier la pêche traditionnelle au gaspareau. Sa désignation au titre de rivière du patrimoine canadien témoigne de l’importance de réseau fluvial Margaree-lac
