Prince Rupert possesses a population of approximately 12,220 people. The Port of Prince Rupert is the deepest natural seaport in North America. In addition to the main port, there are five other terminals for loading and offloading cargo on its way to Asia. Because of the curvature of the earth, Prince Rupert permits transport vessels to reach Asia one day sooner than from any other port in North America. These shipping terminal generate over $1 billion per year in economic activity, which is substantial more a town of 12,000 people.
A recent study regarding the shipping industry in Prince Rupert found that over $35 billion in goods were loaded or off-loaded in the major shipping terminuses. This leads to the direct employment of around 5,200 people and generates more than $390 million in wages for these families. The average annual wage in the area rose to $83,000 in 2016, which is significantly higher than the rest of the province.
The $40 Billion LNG project, slated for Kitimat, will have enormous economic benefits for the region as a whole. There have been over $175 million worth of contracts handed out to First Nations businesses and an additional $937 million to various contractors and subcontractors. At its peak, the construction of LNG facility in Kitimat will employ 4,500 individuals. There are direct spinoff benefits to Port Edward and Prince Rupert, as the LNG facility will create various natural gas liquids, such as propane, which will need access to market. This is where the Prince Rupert Railway terminals and shipping ports will continue to see a boom in business. Alta Gas, of Calgary Alberta, is nearing completion of the new Ridley Island propane export facility. The facility recently underwent a $280 million expansion to meet growing demand for metallurgical coal exports.
Place yourself aboard a fully-equipped charter boat on the Pacific Ocean, feeling the salt spray and sea wind as you wait for the first strike on your line. Imagine pausing before your first cast to admire the breathtaking mountain vistas along the Skeena River, or a glasslike mountain lake, deep in haunting wilderness with not a soul in sight. This is the fishing experience that awaits you in Prince Rupert, a sport fishing destination to rival any in the world.
Escape the crowd in this last frontier of sport fishing. The waters around Prince Rupert are rich in the nutrients that support an abundant resident fish population and straddle the migratory salmon routes. Here you can fish all five species of salmon: Chinook, coho, chum, pink and sockeye. Yet salmon are only the beginning. Jig for halibut, lingcod, or the various species of rockfish, and enjoy the flavorful crab, prawns and shrimp.
Those who prefer freshwater angling will reap dramatic rewards. The Skeena River is one of British Columbia’s most important salmon producers and is famous for its wild salmon and steelhead. The fly and bar fishing are phenomenal.
The wilderness around Prince Rupert is sprinkled with lakes and streams that feature great cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing. Some visitors even book fly-in cabins on our remote mountain lakes.
The best thing of all is that all of this is right on Prince Rupert’s doorstep, so that every amenity of this beautiful port city lies close at hand. From here you can launch your independent adventure, or hire the services of one of our experienced and knowledgeable local guides for a half day, full day or overnight trip.
The Northwest Coast offers more fish, with fewer crowds. Make your dreams come true in this sport fishing paradise.
There is nothing that compares to the sight of wildlife at home in the northern rainforest. Given Prince Rupert’s coastal location, it is no surprise that some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities involve boats and airplanes.
The Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary, the only one of its kind in North America, protects prime grizzly habitat. Some 50 grizzlies, along with numerous black bears, are known to make their home in the area. Situated northeast of Prince Rupert, the Khutzeymateen is accessible by air and by water.
Eagles and gulls are a common site, and deer wander freely through area streets and gardens. Spending a quiet moment watching the boats along the waterfront is often rewarded by a glimpse of a harbor seal, or one of many species of seabirds. On rare occasions even humpback or killer whales.
Prince Rupert was incorporated on March 10, 1910. It was named for Prince Rupert of the Rhine, the first Governor of the Hudson's Bay Company, as the result of an open competition held by the Grand Trunk Railway, the prize for which was $250. Prior to the opening of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (GTP), which developed a terminus at Prince Rupert, the business centre on the North Coast was Port Essington on the Skeena River.
After World War II the fishing industry, particularly for salmon and halibut, and forestry became the city's major industries. Prince Rupert was considered the Halibut Capital of the World until the early 1980s. A long-standing dispute over fishing rights in the Dixon Entrance to the Hecate Strait (pronounced as "hekk-et") between American and Canadian fisherman led to the formation of the 54-40 or Fight Society. The United States Coast Guard maintains a base in nearby Ketchikan, Alaska.
The years from 1996 to 2004 were difficult for Prince Rupert, with closure of the pulp mill, the burning down of a fish plant and a significant population decline. 2005 may be viewed as a critical turning point: the announcement of the construction of a container port in April 2005, combined with new ownership of the pulp mill, the opening in 2004 of a new cruise ship dock, the resurgence of coal and grain shipping, and the prospects of increased heavy industry and tourism may foretell a bright future for the area.
