Economic Development Department

Hadeeh! (Welcome!)

Lake Babine Nation boasts 5 beautiful and resource rich communities.  The Nation has 3 gas bars, a thriving fishery, shared timber areas, and lakeshore land available for business development and investment opportunities. 

Investment in cultural tourism opportunities, retail and service areas, alternative energy and various equipment and construction and maintenance projects are of interest to the Lake Babine Nation at this time. Training, partnership and investment are priorities for enhancing the quality of life of the membership and revenues to the Nation and their respective communities overall.

The Economic Development department can assist with exploring employment and training desires, business opportunities, building business skills, and assist with direction to financing and grants with the membership.  Priorities also are to establish and undertake research and development projects, analyze existing businesses for competitive advantages and review for investment opportunities for the Nation.
