Tourism Investment

Investment Opportunity: Cottage Lot and Commercial Development on Lake Nipigon

Photo of High Hill Harbour MarinaHigh Hill Harbour is located in Greenstone in the ward of Beardmore on Lake Nipigon. The boundary of the Lake Nipigon-Beardmore Enhanced Management Area (EMA) abuts the Lake Nipigon Conservation Reserve to the north and the Nipigon Palisades Conservation Reserve to the south. Highway 11 traverses through the southern portion the EMA and as does the Trans Canada Pipe Line.

The overall land use intent for the Lake Nipigon Basin is to encourage tourism and recreation development in a nodal fashion, focused on the current marina facilities. A diversity of recreational uses will be promoted, ranging from facility oriented recreation to the use of accessible trail networks and enjoyment of quality backcountry experiences along its more remote sections.

  • Development opportunities include:High Hill Harbour Map
  • Development of one eco-lodge (contingent on potential private sector development)
  • Improvements/expansion of the existing marina facilities
  • Development of a cottage lot subdivision in close proximity to High Hill Harbour Marina
  • Development of a number of recreational trail (i.e. hiking, snowmobiling)
  • Factors that will key to the success of any proposal include:
    • Economic benefits for local First Nations and communities
    • Non-consumptive environmental and cultural theme based facility
    • Provision of a high quality tourism opportunity
    • Integration of the new facility in with existing facilities/operations (e.g. harbour, cruiser operations)
    • Be aesthetically pleasing and blend in with the Basin Landscape

Partnerships and investments are actively being sought for the High Hill Harbour Cottage Lot and Commercial Development Project and for Waterfront Development in Geraldton Ward. Please contact Economic Development Office for further information.
