Port of Prince Rupert employers, industries, and labour organizations have established the Port of Prince Rupert Gateway Council (Gateway Council) and released an economic impact study that revealed strong employment benefits associated with the movement of trade through the Prince Rupert Gateway that helped offset the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 Economic Impact Study highlights total economic output from port industry activity as $1.4 billion with direct full-time employment of 3700 with total wages of $360 million. The Gateway Council will work together to identify and advocate for Gateway supply chain improvements to ensure sustainable growth of the gateway that benefits Port partners, their employees, local and Indigenous communities, and all Canadians who rely on the free-flowing movement of trade.
