Feds to funnel $15 million into B.C. port project

PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. -- The Government of Canada will be contributing $15 million to the Ridley Island Road, Rail and Utility Corridor (RRUC) project at the Port of Prince Rupert. Together with contributions from the Government of British Columbia, CN Rail and the Prince Rupert Port Authority, the $90-million project is designed to expand capacity and operations at the Port of Prince Rupert.

"This project will create local jobs, economic growth and prosperity for workers and businesses, while supporting Canada's broad and ambitious pro-trade plan," said

Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway. "Investments in projects such as the RRUC are strengthening our competitive advantages and further positioning Canada as the gateway of choice for global supply chains between Asia and North America. As a result of these strategic investments and partnerships, Canadian exports to the Asia-Pacific region have reached record levels."
