The Prince Rupert Port Authority has clearly had an economic impact on the North Coast over the years, the development of Ridley Island, Fairview Terminals and other Industrial sites has provided for a major shift in the local economy.
The evolution of the regional economy could see yet another major change in the future, with the foundation of an LNG industry on the North Coast and the ambitious expansion plans from the Port just a few of the proposed projects which could reshape the region.
Through all of the change so far, it has been the Port that has been the economic engine of growth and making them a key partner in the community.
In addition to that economic impact, the Port has also taken on a leadership role in assisting Community activities through the region, by way of sponsorship activities and through their Community Investment Fund.
The Community Investment Fund has contributed over 2.5 million dollars towards a number of initiatives in the region, at times partnering with other local corporations to provide for worthy projects
Since its creation in 2009, the Port's efforts in Community involvement can be found in many different directions and initiatives.
To gain a better understanding of their commitment to the community we've tracked many of their donations and community investments with our archive page.
