Incorporated in 1971, Granisle has a total land area of 41.86 square Km (2011 Census).  Via Highway 118 the Village is 50 km north of Highway 16 at Topley, between Burns Lake and Houston.
Granisle is a small community of approx. 300 people. The Village of Granisle was brought to life in the early 70's as a home for families of the miners working in the nearby copper mines. At the height of its population, Granisle boasted 3,000 people.  A proposed copper mine, located 35 km north of Granisle may renew the area's population and increase economic activity.
The Village of Granisle is located on the shore of beautiful Babine Lake, the longest natural lake in B.C. The Granisle area has numerous parks, campsites, lodges, eating establishments, RV hook-ups and marinas, and boasts some of the best outdoor recreational opportunities in northern BC.
