When you go to the Parks Canada website, you need to select the individual park you are interested in from the list of the parks and then the information on pets is often found in the Visitor Information - Plan Your Trip and Safety sections. I just glanced at the Cape Breton page and it looked like dogs on leash are allowed on some of the trails, but not on swimming beaches or certain trails. You then have to go to the individual trail listings to see if dogs are allowed. It takes a little longer to search because each park has its own rules and regulations, it's not "across the board". When you do searches you will also have the best luck with the term "pets", rather than "dogs". There are some parks that don't permit dogs due to issues with Caribou and other wildlife, but most do, as long as they are on leash.
We did a lot of fun things and Allie was even permitted to go on the glacier near the Columbia Icefields. We camped for the majority of our trip and Allie had a ball.
Good luck and have fun!

Check these out:
Nova Scotia parks where dogs can hike
PEI parks where dogs can hike
Poke around the rest of the site and you might find more useful info: Hike With Your Dog. If you download the free part of his book, you'll probably find just what you were looking for.
