AltaGas provides support to Prince Rupert’s North Coast Transition Society
December 14, 2017
In November, 2017, the City of Prince Rupert, in partnership with the Province and the North Coast Transition Society opened a new extreme weather shelter for the homeless in downtown Prince Rupert.
While the province provided funding to cover the shelter’s expenses, additional funding was needed to effectively run the 25-bed shelter. Prince Rupert’s Mayor Brain put out the call for help and AltaGas quickly stepped up to help with a $10,000 donation.
The extreme weather shelter is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. on Sundays and provides a light meal.
