Where Canada's Wilderness Begins
"On British Columbia’s North Coast you don’t control nature, you pay attention to her every mood. This is a place where eagles, bears, and whales outnumber people. An area with over 10,000 years of First Nations history. Where fishing is both a job and a form of recreation. A place where being friendly and out-going is just the natural way to be. This is Canada like you have never experienced. Join us in Prince Rupert, and let us share with you the history, the people, and the many moods of British Columbia’s North Coast."
