Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery is located in the historic fishing village of Steveston, the largest commercial small-craft fishing port in Canada. Built in 1894, the Cannery was once the largest of its kind, and was known as the “Monster Cannery”. Today the Cannery is the last among more than 15 canneries that once stood on the Steveston waterfront. Now a National Historic Site operated by the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society on behalf of Parks Canada, the Cannery showcases the history of Canada’s West Coast fishing industry.

Visitors can experience the sights, sounds and smells of this rich history while exploring our permanent, interactive exhibits including the restored salmon canning line and the Herring Reduction Plant. Additionally, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery offers a feature exhibition which changes every two years, private and public tours, and is host to many exciting events and programs.
