Is Gaelic still spoken there?

There are about 2000 people here in Nova Scotia I think who still have the Gàidhlig but not many who have it as a mother tongue. Like Scotland, many are trying to learn and regain this part of their heritage (including me! <3 )

In addition to having bilingual Gàidhlig/English street signs in Cape Breton, they also have the only Gaelic College that I'm aware of: https://gaeliccollege.edu/ (and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gaelic_College).

But I've not run into anyone speaking Gaelic on the street, though I expect there are pockets of it.

Always wished Australia had a state or an area that had Gaelic speakers. The Scots that came here obviously spoke Gaelic and I know some of my family did back in the 1800's, but it seemed to not have lasted.

Is the à in Tha mi à Alba Nuadh the same word as the às in Cò às a tha sibh?

If it is why has the s been dropped?
