The City of Prince Rupert is situated on Kaien Island, on British Columbia’s beautiful Northwest Coast approximately 770 km north of Vancouver. A vibrant community set against a backdrop of mountains and sea which offers glorious scenery, legendary sport fishing and a wide variety of wilderness exploration, Prince Rupert is a little marine city.
The Port of Prince Rupert, otherwise known as "Canada's leading edge port”, is the express gateway to the Northwest Transportation Corridor and is poised to undergo substantial growth and economic expansion. With the advantage of being one of the deepest natural harbours in the world as well as being the closest North American port to Asia by up to three days, the Port of Prince Rupert is uniquely positioned on the shortest trade route with key Asian markets. Northwest British Columbia is a great place to invest as we surge forward to be one of the most exciting places to do business. There are over $60 Billion in major projects and investment opportunities planned in our region.
We take great pride in our community which is a great place to live, work and raise families.
