Alaskan Trade Gateway



The Alaskan Government is currently experiencing budget challenges, and has considered cuts to the existing Alaska Marine Highway System, including the ferry service that stops in Prince Rupert. By enabling the Tsimshian Access Project, we would like to suggest a new opportunity for the Alaskan Government to look at alternative locations to their current route – one that could realize efficiencies in time and cost, improving access to Alaska through Lax Kw’alaams.


In turn this would greatly increase tourism and economic benefits for Prince Rupert and the region. We are also hoping to initiate communications between the U.S. and Canadian Federal Governments to develop mutually beneficial policies that might enable trade through Prince Rupert, and open the region to become a potential Alaskan Trade Gateway.
