Pull of the Net: a Multicultural Celebration

September 21 to 27, 2020

Welcome to the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society’s celebration of multiculturalism in Canada’s West Coast fishing heritage. Now in its fourth year, this year’s celebration will be brought to you online, as a virtual event. Thank you to all who participated in the presentation of performances, demonstrations, and activities.

The 2020 event has ended – thank you for joining us!


The annual Pull of the Net event, presented by the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, celebrates the multicultural communities who helped build Canada’s west coast fishing industry. The first celebration took place in 2017 during Canada 150, and marked the opening of our feature exhibit of the same name. For more information, please contact our Audience Engagement Manager Krystal Newcombe by email or phone: 604.664.9282.


The Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society would like to thank Port of Vancouver for sponsoring this event.
