Built in 1894 as a salmon cannery in the fishing village of Steveston, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery was once the largest of its kind, earning it the nickname ‘The Monster Cannery’. Today, interactive displays and exhibits present the history of Canada’s west coast fishing industry, where visitors of all ages will enjoy exploring a restored salmon canning line from the early to mid-1900’s, and a herring reduction plant, which was in operation at the site from 1940 to 1979.

Guided tours, films and programs suitable for all ages are available throughout the year.
Open Daily 10am to 5pm
