About Prince Rupert

Pic RockPrince Rupert is situated on Kaien Island, just off the North Coast of British Columbia.

It is Canada's most northern port on the West Coast and is the southern terminus for the Alaska Ferry.

Our growing city is located on traditional Tsimshian First Nations territory and has close ties to its cultural background. Enjoy the art and artifacts of our First Nations ancestors in local museums and art galleries. Numerous totem poles are located throughout the city for viewing pleasure.
