A bit about the Prince Rupert Port Authority
The Port Authority is responsible for the overall planning, development, marketing and management of the commercial port facilities within Prince Rupert Harbour. This includes ensuring competitive, efficient and timely responses to customer needs and business opportunities. It also means ensuring we facilitate these opportunities in a manner that is safe, responsible, and sustainable. We take pride in ensuring our operations and developments reflect the community’s values and standards. Through a variety of programs, the Port of Prince Rupert strives to reinforce its commitment to the local community.

In 1972 the Port of Prince Rupert was declared a National Harbour and by 1975 construction of its first facility, Fairview Terminal, was completed. The building and continued expansion of Prince Rupert port facilities provided the impetus for development throughout Northwestern Canada and was an engine driving economic growth in this region, and the Prince Rupert Port Authority was created to manage this growth and development.
The creation of the Prince Rupert Port Authority as a governance body occured in 1997, and has overseen the Port’s transition from a regional resource port to an emerging North American trade gateway.
Where are we now?
2015 was an extraordinary year of growth, innovation and development at Prince Rupert’s
trade gateway. Interested individuals can find out more at the upcoming Annual Public Meeting on June 23rd.
Most recently, the Port of Prince Rupert, in collaboration with various marine partners, documented how we all work together to make a safe harbour even safer. Check out a short tribute to marine safety, as you sail through a year-long journey in just a few minutes:
