Janvrin Island is a Canadian island off the coast of Cape Breton Island Nova Scotia in Richmond County. Janvrin Island, named for the family of John Janvrin, a merchant trader of Jersey, Channel Islands, is connected by a bridge to neighbouring Isle Madame. Janvrin Island was used by the Mi'kmaq Indians as a summer hunting ground and was especially prized for the white skinned deer who prospered there. For this reason, they called it "The Isle of the White Stag."
