There are lots of fun things for kids to do at the Cannery! What’s even better is that regular admission for kids 17 years and under are free (must be accompanied by an adult). Explore the massive historic building and the many hands-on, interactive exhibits. Use a ‘peugh’ to sort salmon at the fish bins, try boat-spotting from the our dock on the Steveston Harbour, or be the captain of your own fishing boat in the Model Wheelhouse.

Are your children curious, bright, and active? Then they are perfect candidates to become Parks Canada Xplorers.

When you arrive at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery NHS, ask for an Xplorers booklet filled with fun activities that will guide your discovery of this unique site.

After completing the activities kids are recognized as official Parks Canada Xplorers with a certificate and special collectible souvenir!

Xplorer booklets are suitable for kids ages 6-11 years, and are available in English and French.
