For the first time in two years, members of the public will be able to take in the Annual Public Meeting for the Prince Rupert Port authority in person, with the Port set to host their review of the past and preview of the future at the Crest Hotel on June 15th.
Having been a on line event for the last two years, this year makes for the return for public gatherings with the Port's presentation session in the BC Room at the Crest to take place from 5-6 PM.
The annual overview of Port operations will provides glimpse as to how the Port has weathered the last year of COVID interruptions to global trade, as well as to make note of current and future initiatives that are in motion.
The format of the past has seen a number of Port officials provide a short snapshot of developments from many areas of Port operations.
Among some of the areas where those in attendance may gain some updates on could be the progress for the Container connection between the DP World facility and Ridley Island, that road should be nearing its opening soon and once in operation will reduce the traffic through the downtown core significantly.
Also of interest perhaps is the progress for a number of Logistics parks at Ridley Island or nearby, with both a Metlakatla led one and the Port's own Export Terminal plans for Ridley still in the development stages.
Updates on other port related projects such as the VOPAK terminal, Wolverine Fuelling Terminal and many others could also make for some of the items for the review list for 2022.
You can review some of the Port's financial themes through their 2021 Financial statement which is now available on the PRPA website.
