PRPA Land Use Plan plan guides the growth and trade for next 20 years within its lands and waters

The finalization of updating the land use plan by the Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) has been announced in a press release on Oct. 21.

PRPA’s Land Use Plan is a strategic document that helps guide PRPA’s vision to continue its sustainable growth within the lands and waters under its formal jurisdiction. It will facilitate Canada’s trade with the world through the next 20 years.

“The updated Land Use Plan will help guide the Prince Rupert Port Authority, ensuring we consider the long-term impact of our decisions to best support continued growth and diversification at our Port,” Shaun Stevenson, president and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority said.

“The Plan reflects the feedback we have received from local First Nations, local governments, and residents, balancing environmental and community values while we work towards creating even greater economic and employment opportunities,” Stevenson said.
