Serving a local client population of approximately 600, the Health Centre is the sole medical facility in the community of Granisle on the shore of Lake Babine, British Columbia’s largest natural lake.
The small town of Granisle is located on the shores of 180 km (110 miles) long Babine Lake, 49 km (30 miles) north of Highway #16 from Topley and within an hour and a half of a major airport and connection to Vancouver. Granisle is a retirement and recreational community offering many services and clubs including a library, post office, medical centre, elementary and secondary school, and RCMP Station. Clubs include Lions Club, Dart Club, Rod and Gun Club, Curling Club and Cross Country Ski Club.
Babine Lake offers prime fishing and boating and provides a perfect setting for all kinds of water sports. The surrounding wilderness area offers plenty of opportunity for hiking, hunting, camping and any number of outdoor adventures during the summer and a variety of winter activities from cross-country skiing to ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter months.
One of the most spectacular natural wonders close to the village is the sockeye salmon returning to spawn in the nearby Fulton River Spawning Channels. Along with the salmon you may be fortunate enough to get a glimpse of a bald eagle or grizzly bear feeding at the river. Whatever the season, the beauty and recreational opportunities of Granisle and the surrounding countryside keep visitors returning year after year.
