Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society
The Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society is a non-profit and registered charity organization that honours the importance of Canada’s West Coast fishing history by sharing stories of the fishing industry and fishing communities through exhibitions, collections, programs, and events. The Society's mandate is to operate the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site on behalf of Parks Canada. Since the 1980s, the Society has worked in partnership with Parks Canada to preserve the Cannery facility and is now responsible for its interpretation through tours and educational programming, site promotion and regular maintenance. In addition to operating the historic site, the Society works to achieve its mission through other activities such as creating annual feature exhibitions related to fishing history and producing community events such as the annual Pull of the Net multicultural celebration. In all activities, the Society is committed to working with the Steveston community to preserve its fishing heritage and local charm.
