One of B.C.?s few historically intact canneries, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery commemorates the development of Canada?s West Coast fishing industry from the 1870?s to the present. Throughout its history, West Coast fishing has helped fuel the economy and enrich the social fabric of B.C. This vibrant heritage is justly celebrated in Steveston, which was, and remains, an important centre of the Westcoast fishing industry.
The Gulf of Georgia Cannery is now a National Historical Site owned by Parks Canada and operated by the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society.
