Facility:Gulf of Georgia Cannery
Description:Since its construction in 1894, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site, in Steveston, has been a landmark for fishermen. This historic site commemorates Canada's West Coast fishing industry, and contains relics from the past, when the canneries operated day and night.

A model of a 1930s production line is set up along one long L-shaped counter. Murals of fish and trawlers cover the walls; showcases full of glass net floats from Japan, various shiny salmon tins, and model boats help convey a sense of Steveston's heritage.

Mountains of fishing gear and nets are arranged outside. It is hard to imagine that at the turn of the century there were 49 canneries on the Fraser River from Steveston to New Westminster - fifteen of those were in Steveston alone!
