Providing a uniquely cultural shopping, dining, and marina experience located within our picturesque First Nation lands.
Ahneen, Biindigen, Hello, Boozhoo, Welcome!
Island View Business retail spaces host Tobacco Trails, Virginia Beach Marina, The Boondocks Restaurant, Daawegamig, as well as First Nation government, and Law Firm offices.
Island View Business Centre is owned entirely by The Chippewas of Georgina Island and is located on their mainland reserve. We are approximately 100 km north of the Greater Toronto Area. Chippewas of Georgina Island developed the Island View Business Centre in 2016, to offer retail, tourism, and recreational services to visitors and our surrounding communities. The business centre provides employment for our members and others in the community with revenues supporting our First Nation's community initiatives.
Our mission is to provide people with a unique cultural shopping, dining and marina experience located on our First Nation lands.
Indigenous culture is a source of great fascination and mystery world-wide. Island View Business Centre prides itself on delivering a truly authentic experience that illustrates both the diversity of Indigenous culture and how we have progressed through time. We achieve this by including both traditional and contemporary activities, a cultural unique shopping experience, and providing a gateway to our First Nation. We seek to inform and enlighten visitors, introducing them to the Chippewas of Georgina Island's warm hospitality throughout our services.
We are home to a rich culture, a tradition of peace, and a history of oral traditions that emphasize inclusion. We highlight a beautiful clash of cultures, as we continue our ceremonies and language just over an hour from Toronto.
We invite visitors to boat our waters, hike our popular Nanabush trails, and to join us at Island View Business Centre for a culturally diverse retail and recreation experience. In the winter our beautiful lands and waters turn into a winter wonderland, offering year-round activities, and exceptional winter fishing opportunities.
