On this National Indigenous Peoples Day, as we honour the memories of Indigenous children buried at the sites of former residential schools, we celebrate the strength, wisdom, and resilience of Indigenous people. We will continue to listen and learn, and to show our deepest respect and appreciation for the contributions of Indigenous voices and histories.

We operate on the traditional lands of the Ts’msyen people, whose rich culture, language, and knowledge is celebrated by all of us at the Prince Rupert Port Authority. These two welcome poles were carved by Ts’msyen artist Michael Epp as part of a new art installation at Prince Rupert Regional Airport.

The pole on the right depicts a human figure with a paddle and nine symbolic human figures above it, representing the Nine Allied Tribes of Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla. The pole on the left depicts the four crests: eagle, raven, wolf, killer whale, with a Sm’ooygit or chief at the base with his hand outstretched in a welcoming gesture. The artwork is jointly owned by Metlakatla and Lax Kw’alaams and was funded by the Prince Rupert Port Authority and DP World.

THE PRINCE RUPERT ADVANTAGE

Shortest Pacific Route

The Port of Prince Rupert is North America’s closest port to Asia by up to three days sailing—it’s 36 hours closer to Shanghai than Vancouver and over 68 hours closer than Los Angeles.

Safe Access to Shipping Lanes

Major marine risks are greatly mitigated by the ideal natural features of our harbour. The Port of Prince Rupert has the deepest harbour in North America, is ice-free year round, and is able to accommodate the largest vessels in the shipping trade.

Deepest Harbour in North America

Our deep, wide, and protected approaches enjoy a short, direct access to and from Pacific shipping lanes and oers ample room for anchorages. That’s why our pilot time is 2-6 hours less than other major Northwest ports.
