Celebrating 10 Years Prince Rupert

The Port of Prince Rupert


Connecting markets, connecting industries, and connecting communities

At CN, our business is about connecting. The depth of that connection extends far beyond the dots on the map of our extensive and fluid three-coast transcontinental network. While our railway, intermodal and supply chain services connect industries and markets here and abroad, we are also connecting people, livelihoods, and communities. It is with that spirit of connection in mind that our friends and partners at the Port of Prince Rupert and DP World celebrated their milestone 10-year anniversary of the Fairview Container Terminal.

By sharing the stories of Western Canadian trade with a focus on the people and communities who come together to move the goods from our resource rich country to global markets, our partners at Prince Rupert remind us of just how deeply the export market is actively enriching and connecting the lives of people here and abroad.

CN is proud of the role we play in the industries and communities across the Western Canadian trade corridor and we look forward to many more years working in partnership with the Port of Prince Rupert and all of our supply chain partners to continue connecting our great Canadian industries to the world.

2017 saw the celebration of not only The Port of Prince Rupert’s milestone 10 year anniversary, but also the completion of the Fairview Container terminal expansion project, as well as being awarded top performing port in North America at the recent JOC Port Performance North America Conference. As North America's top performing port, it is clear that the Port of Prince Rupert is well situated to continue connecting people and industries for years to come.
