Feasibility Study for a potential social enterprise in Jackson's Arm


The Stanley Ford Heritage Property and Outbuildings is a collection of historic buildings in the Town of Jackson's Arm that have been retored and opened as a museum. They give a look into an earlier time in Newfoundland outport life. The mnuseum is run by the Jackson's Arm Heritage Society Inc. This volunteer, non-for-profit group has the opportunity to further expand their offerings and possibly begin a tourism-based social enterprise in the community. They are in the process of acquiring a large old storehouse on the dock in the area known as Janes' Point. They are interested in having a researcher investigate the feasibility of taking the Janes' Point property and converting it into an inn/B&B, craft store and demonstration kitchen. The intention is to have this propoerty operate as a social enterprise with all proceeds going to the maintenance of the entire operation, including the museum, and be an employer in a community with little employment and industry adjustment occurring. We are looking for a researcher with interest in business and community development to do this feasibility study and assist with this worthwhile project.
