The city of Prince Rupert is located on the beautiful northwestern coast of British Columbia, Canada, just below the Alaskan panhandle. The city is home to a diversity of cultures and a rich First Nations history. Named the City of Rainbows, our city sees almost 3 metres of rain each year which supports a lush rainforest. Fishing and hiking are among the more popular outdoor activities. Rupert also has a very active arts community.
