It includes approximately 700,000 sf. of net leasable area and accommodates over 275 businesses, provides more than 2,000 full-time jobs, and generates approximately $262 million in sales and $37.5 million in tax receipts a year (2016).
CMHC administers Granville Island on behalf of the Government of Canada pursuant to a 1973 Order in Council which transferred the administration, management and control of GI to CMHC.
