Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site

There's so much to discover!

Situated atop wooden pilings over the mighty Fraser River, the Cannery is one of the few remaining 19th century salmon canneries in B.C. In its heyday, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery was the largest building of its kind and the leading producer of canned salmon in B.C. Now a dynamic fishing museum, step inside and become immersed in the sights, sounds and stories of the West Coast fishing industry. So much to see and do, all at an affordable price!.
