Located on British Columbia's beautiful Pacific North Coast and at the mouth of the majestic Skeena River, Prince Rupert is Canada’s Northern Gateway for Asia-North American trade, Prince Rupert is a transportation hub for Northern BC, easily accessible by air (2 hour flight from Vancouver), cruise ship, ferry (BC Ferry or Alaska Marine Highway Ferry), rail (from Prince George), and highway 16. Framed and protected by coastal mountains and islands, Prince Rupert has the world’s second deepest, natural, ice-free harbour and it is North America’s closest port to Asia. The harbour is home to a modern cruise ship terminal and a new, expanding container terminal that moves goods of all kinds between Asia and the rest of North America. An established and highly efficient inter-modal transportation network connects Asia to the heart of Canadian and US consumer markets. Prince Rupert has long been a major force in fishing and seafood harvesting. Prince Rupert is also establishing itself as a hot spot for renewable energy, aquaculture, and cultural and eco-tourism opportunities. It is ideally situated for wind and tidal power generation and the nutrient rich waters of the North Pacific are a perfect location for shellfish aquaculture. Prince Rupert is a welcoming, friendly, safe and affordable place to live and raise a family. This is where the breath taking scenery of the north coast combines with first-class recreational attractions, state-of-the-art transportation and telecommunication infrastructure, abundant natural resources, and countless business development opportunities related to port development and expanding new sectors. Furthermore, the diverse cultural backgrounds inherent within the community make it a welcoming destination for non-residents
