Ten Years of Building Stronger Communities
The Prince Rupert Port Authority’s Community Investment Fund has enhanced the everyday lives of people in communities across Northwestern BC.
Since 2010, PRPA has committed over $12.5 million to the Fund and worked with local organizations to complete more than 80 projects.
To commemorate its 10th anniversary, we’re looking back at 10 projects that embody the spirit of the Fund and made us proud to be a part of.
Rushbrook Trail is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. The waterfront path connecting Rushbrook Floats and Seal Cove was closed to the public for 15 years, due to safety concerns. It re-opened in 2018, as a result of the hard work of volunteers and support from several contributing partners, including the Community Investment Fund.
Lester Centre of the Arts
Since opening its doors in 1987, the Lester Centre of the Arts has been an important community gathering place in Prince Rupert. People come from all over the Northwest to see performances in the theatre, which hosts numerous special events. Through multiple Community Investment Fund contributions, this unique space has been updated with new state-of-the-art equipment.
