NCEC Mission:

Operating seasonally (May-Oct), the North Coast Ecology Centre aims to engage a

broad audience with a sensory experience that will make a lasting connection

between the local environment and conservation. We hope to generate respect

and amazement through interaction, as well as bring the city of Prince Rupert

together through shared appreciation. Wherever possible, we will prioritize

community engagement and recruitment to enhance local knowledge growth and


Given that the wilderness around us is often difficult to access, we will create

an active and inclusive space for local education, as well as the relevant

hands-on-activity and experiences that are necessary for stewardship to

occur. The centre will provide the platform for understanding how to care for

our many wonderful species and to ensure that we will have access to the

ocean’s bounties for many more centuries.

We plan to offer a new tourism destination, activate and revitalize 

Prince Rupert’s waterfront, create economic stimulus, and become a community resource for locals and visitors.



The North Coast Ecology Centre Society aims to create a permanent education centre in Prince Rupert that highlights the region’s ecological richness.
