Last year the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society proudly launched our virtual exhibit From Tides to Tins: Salmon Canning in BC. This online exhibit, which was created with support from the Virtual Museum of Canada, provides an introduction to the industry by documenting each of BC’s salmon canneries and exploring their historical context. It includes an interactive map, a timeline of the industry, an overview of the canning process, and an interactive game.
This year, the Society has opened an onsite extension of this exhibit. This new display gives visitors to the Cannery a taste of what can be experienced on the website, as well as provides access to the site itself through an onsite kiosk. We hope you will be able to come and check out this new and exciting space!
