The Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society goes above and beyond operating the Cannery National Historic Site to enrich the ways in which we preserve and promote Canada’s West Coast fishing history. Private donations provide key support for these additional activities.

Society projects include:

  • Producing annual feature exhibitions highlighting different aspects of the fishing industry
  • Publishing four books about BC’s fishing industry
  • Creating an online database of historical photographs of BC’s fishing and canning industries
  • Coordinating the annual “Fishing the West Coast” photo contest celebrating the modern fishing industry
  • Producing a resource guide to help teachers educate about the history of canneries in BC
