The new Cow Bay Marina off to an amazing start thanks to Northern Development’s Economic Diversification Infrastructure program

April 27, 2016


Our CEO, Janine North, was thrilled to be a part of the Grand Opening of the Cow Bay Marina on April 9th in Prince Rupert. Community members gathered in the new public space to celebrate the grand opening of the breakwater with spectacular weather, live music and free food. 

Over the last 5 years, our residents have incrementally experienced being cut off from Prince Rupert’s waterfront,” said Mayor Lee Brain, “The new Cow Bay Marina and public breakwater is the City’s response to provide new waterfront access for residents to enjoy Prince Rupert’s beautiful harbour. We want to sincerely thank all our partners for making this a reality. Projects like this are just the beginning of a larger plan to repatriate our waterfront for public use so we can provide a quality of life that all Prince Rupert residents deserve.” 

“Community waterfront access is among the most important of our planning and investment activities, and the Cow Bay breakwater represents our continued commitment to creating spaces for residents to experience Prince Rupert’s harbour,” said Don Krusel, CEO of the Port of Prince Rupert.

The Cow Bay Marina received $375,000 through Northern Development’s Economic Diversification Infrastructure program, which you can read more about here. This new public space is a stunning asset to the community and we are thrilled to have played a role in building a stronger north.
