The Queen Charlotte Islands are accessed by ferry from Prince Rupert on the BC mainland to the Skidegate Landing Ferry Terminal on Graham Island, by air from Vancouver to Sandspit on Moresby Island (770 km), and by air from Prince Rupert to Sandspit.
To the east of Sandspit is Alliford Bay, the Moresby Island terminus of the important inter-island ferry between Alliford Bay and Skidegate Landing on Graham Island.

The GPWS is designed to generate aural and visual warnings if the aircraft enters a flight path toward the ground that would lead to a collision with terrain, or for a landing with an incorrect landing configuration.
These distractions, and the numerous radio transmissions to the aircraft regarding the Sandspit weather, likely resulted in the crew forgetting that the gear had not been extended and the before-landing checklist not completed.
