The community of Prince Rupert has much to offer residents and visitors alike. With many ammenties usually found only in larger cities, it still manages to capture the small town feeling.


Prince Rupert Regional Hospital is a full service hospital serving the city and surround region.

Policing is provided by the RCMP, with the City Detachment looking after local needs, and the West Coast Marine Services office serving coastal communities areas.

Since its inception, Prince Rupert has always operated its own telephone company. Today this legacy is continued with CityWest, which provides not only telephone but also cable and internet to Prince Rupert and beyond.


Prince Rupert has a wide range of recreational facilities, including the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre, Earl Mah Aquatic Centre and Lester Centre of the Arts. As well, the city operates the 18-hole Prince Rupert Golf Course, and the Raquet Centre. For more information on recreational facilities, go to City of Prince Rupert.
