PRINCE RUPERT PORT AUTHORITY INVESTS OVER $100,000 INTO MASSETT MARINE RESCUE SOCIETY

A celebration was held last week in Massett to celebrate the acquisition of a new fast-response search and rescue vessel to service the waters of Haida Gwaii and the North Coast.
Through its Community Investment Fund, the Prince Rupert Port Authority contributed $116,121 towards the project, which enabled the Massett Marine Rescue Society (MMRS) to invest in a new, enclosed, fully equipped vessel for its Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue station. The vessel will significantly improve MMRS’s emergency response effectiveness and range off the coast of Haida Gwaii. "Grassroots community-led organizations like Massett Search and Rescue make significant contributions to ensuring our region’s emergency response capacity for local mariners and smaller craft incidents is also world-class. Our appreciation goes out to them,” said Shaun Stevenson, President and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

THE PRINCE RUPERT ADVANTAGE

Shortest Pacific Route

The Port of Prince Rupert is North America’s closest port to Asia by up to three days sailing—it’s 36 hours closer to Shanghai than Vancouver and over 68 hours closer than Los Angeles.

Safe Access to Shipping Lanes

Major marine risks are greatly mitigated by the ideal natural features of our harbour. The Port of Prince Rupert has the deepest harbour in North America, is ice-free year round, and is able to accommodate the largest vessels in the shipping trade.

Deepest Harbour in North America

Our deep, wide, and protected approaches enjoy a short, direct access to and from Pacific shipping lanes and oers ample room for anchorages. That’s why our pilot time is 2-6 hours less than other major Northwest ports.
