NEW PORT OF PRINCE RUPERT GATEWAY COUNCIL SHARES ECONOMIC IMPACT STATS AND CELEBRATES JOB GROWTH

Port of Prince Rupert employers, industries and labour organizations have launched the Port of Prince Rupert Gateway Council (Gateway Council) and released an economic impact study that revealed strong employment benefits associated to the movement of trade through the Prince Rupert Gateway that helped offset the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Prince Rupert Gateway supports the movement of goods through the Port of Prince Rupert to and from domestic and international markets. Over the last decade, this movement of goods has increased by over 100% to a record 32.4 million tonnes of cargo in 2020, thanks to the vast contributions of Gateway partners.

Today was a record-breaking kind of day at the Port of Prince Rupert! The largest container vessel ever to call on DP World Canada's Fairview Container Terminal berthed for vessel unload yesterday, September 21st.

The MSC AURIGA of the Santana service (SAN for short) is seen here with a carrying capacity of 15,000 TEUs. It unloaded all of its cargo and has set off for its next destination this morning. The SAN service is a newly started service with MSC since early August 2021. The previous record Prince Rupert held was 14,500 TEUs by COSCO Himalayas in 2017.

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.
