The Gulf of Georgia Cannery is located in the historic fishing village of Steveston, still the largest commercial fishing port in Canada.  Built in 1894, the Cannery was one of the biggest of its time and was known as the “Monster Cannery”. Today the Cannery is the last among more than 15 canneries that occupied cannery row on the Steveston waterfront. Now a national historic site, exhibits showcase the history of Canada’s West Coast fishing industry.

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society is a 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. Established in 1986, the Society boasts over 250 members and is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
