History Original citizens of Prince Rupert were the Tsimshian First Nations, which had lived in Prince Rupert for thousands of years. The first group of out comers are from Hudson's Bay Company, who were mainly attracted by Prince Rupert's sea otter pelt. But the major factors that leads Prince Rupert to today's growth is mainly by its fishing industries and its connection with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. Major Factors that affects the climate Skeena River Nearby bodies of water:

Small area prevents city's population growth
Causes high precipitation
Jobs are mainly resource-based causes a lot of emigrations. Rocky Mountains Next to the Pacific Ocean Appalachian Mountains The city itself is located on flat plains, beside the city are rocky, Appalachian mountains, and the Pacific Ocean. How Might Climate Change Affect the City? Change of temperature
Would cause higher rates of emigration because its original climate is always moderate.
Change of precipitation rate
Immigration would increase, since high precipitation is always a push-factor for Prince Rupert's population. 3rd Annual Cemetery Day

The most efficient route in North America.
Provides access to major markets.
Example cities: Chicago, Memphis Fishing Known for some of its best salmon and halibut fishing in the world Resources Available Mainly forestry and fishing. Primary Industries Sustainable? Or not? If not controlling, these activities are very unsustainable. Since the main industries are focusing on fishing and forestry. Without proper control, these resources would decrease, and eventually become extinct. How to increase the sustainability in the community? Limit the number of fish of each types allowed to be fished in each periods of time.
Limit the amount of trees allowed to be cut down. And make laws of how many trees should be planted for the amount of trees cutted down.
Or, start up another industry and stop focusing on only 2 industries that is more sustainable. Ethnicity (In BC) English - 29.63% of population
Scottish - 20.32% of population
Canadian - 17.67% of population Religions (In BC) No religion - 36%
Protestant - 31%
Catholic - 17% Conclusion History Founded by Charles Malville Hays, general manager of Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.
Was incorporated on March 10 in 1910. Was originally planned for having berthing facilities for large ships, and develop into a major tourism industry, but the plan fail as Charles perished on the RMS Titanic. Later on fishing and forestry became the city's major industry. On 1947, pulp mill was added to PR's industries. Then later on grain and coal shipping terminals followed. Through the years 1960s to 1990s Prince Rupert slowly turned from a small town into a small city. KEY connections. Would I live in Prince Rupert? Is the land, air, water hub of BC. Had the closest North America port to Asia, which provides huge advantage to the province's resources transport and goods shipping. YES? NO? I would chose Prince Rupert as a vacation location but I would chose to live in Prince Rupert. Prince Rupert's landscape allows it to have easy access to many recreational activities but the mountains and ocean along side the city also limits the area of spaces in the city. It also have mild and moderate climate but it have huge amount of annual precipitation, restricting and preventing many outdoor activities to be completed. Another reason that makes me decide to not live in Prince Rupert is because of its small job diversity, landscape and resources available to the city limits its job to primary resource-base which means there are really little jobs in other areas. And lastly, it is a very small city which means there are limited amount of people you can meet and less activities that a big city can host. Future of Immigration Currently have stable population which means migration rate an population are balance, if continue on, the city would have about the same amount of population. Amy Rollo.
