Director for 
Tourism Prince Rupert
Change is in motion at the offices for Tourism Prince Rupert, that with the announcement Monday, that Executive Director Ceilidh Marlow is departing the post she has held for the last four years. 

The passionate advocate for Prince Rupert set to take on a new career with one of British Columbia's most iconic corporations.

Ms. Marlow, will leave her post at TPR on March 25th charting a new course with the BC Ferry Corporation,  set to take her infectious enthusiasm for her work to the province's ferry system, a post that should make for a challenging, but rewarding future.  

After working with the Museum of Northern British Columbia, she joined Tourism Prince Rupert four years ago and instituted some significant changes to their footprint in the community, all while navigating some of the most challenging times for the industry during COVID.

Many of the elements of her stewardship of tourism in the community will be on display far into the future.  

Among just a few of the initiatives the Prince Rupert community Welcome signs, the way finding signs around the community which incorporated Sm'algyax and local artists and the creation of the waterfront Lax Süülda Container Market in the Cow Bay Area.

She spoke to some of those milestones as part of her farewell notes to the Organization, as well as to share her best wishes to her successor Jamie Angus.

As part of her community impact, Ms. Marlow was also part of the revisioning work underway for Mariner's Park in the community.

That volume of work will go with her to BC Ferries, where she should thrive and bring a much needed northern perspective to the Ferry Corporation.

Towards her departure, Tourism Prince Rupert Chair  Blair Mirau spoke on behalf of the Board and likely for many in tourism in the region.
