About Us

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery is located in the fishing village of Steveston the largest commercial fishing port in Canada. The Cannery was built in 1894 and until 1902, was known as the “Monster Cannery” among more than 15 canneries that occupied cannery row on the Steveston waterfront. It is now a national historic site and home to a museum presenting the history of Canada’s West Coast fishing industry.

Established in 1986, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society is an independent non-profit society and registered charity responsible for the operation of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site of Canada on behalf of Parks Canada. Boasting over 250 members, the Society is governed by a board comprised of volunteer directors who bring together a wealth of expertise in community building, British Columbian history, heritage preservation, commercial fishing, business practice, education, and fundraising.
