About Prince Rupert
Beautiful Kaien Island, on the north coast of British Columbia, is home to the city of Prince Rupert. Northern Canada and southern Alaska meet at our deep-water port, which is also the shipping-trade gateway to Asia.
This small-but-vibrant community is enhanced by the rich cultural history of the local Tsimshian First Nations (on whose traditional lands Prince Rupert is situated). Our excellent local museums and galleries, public art, and numerous intricate totem poles pay tribute to the story of the Tsimshian peoples.
As well, Prince Rupert boasts exciting public festivals, arts, and cultural events that engage visitors and locals, alike.
