Granisle Provincial Investment Profile
The Village of Granisle was originally established as a mining community on the Shore of Babine Lake, the largest natural lake in British Columbia, that has unsurpassed beauty, and is now predominately a retirement and may one day become partly a mining community again. There is great opportunity in Granisle for investment, the village has a housing surplus, a strong and reliable water supply, three phase power, a heavy duty paved highway to HWY 16 and some large buildings that could be used for a wide variety of business purposes. Granisle represents a great opportunity for innovative small business initiatives that have a product whose cost to market is not a large percentage of its overall value. There is a potential labour force in local surrounding communities who are well educated. A rural setting in a somewhat remote area does present some challenges in terms of supply and shipping however there are also benefits such as close proximity to the work place for workers, a great place for wilderness recreation, and great place to raise children. Granisle is a unique opportunity for a small company whose leadership enjoys thinking outside of the box and is seeking a rural lifestyle and wishes to escape the rat race.
