Gulf of Georgia Cannery
The City is implementing the Restoring Richmond Plan, a carefully planned step-by-step approach to reopening services, amenities and facilities impacted by COVID-19. See Affected City Services & Facilities for current service and amenity information.
The Gulf of Georgia Cannery commemorates the history of the West Coast fishing industry. Exhibits, displays artefacts and machinery, give visitors a sense of how the cannery must have looked and sounded during its years of operation. Guided tours allow visitors experience the salmon canning line or to see some of the massive machinery which was used in herring reduction. Other exhibits can be viewed in a self- guided tour.
Visitors will also enjoy seeing a 25 minute film “Ebb & Flow: Turning Points in the History of West Coast Fishing” which is shown continually most days. This documentary style film complements the history covered in the Cannery’s guided tours.
While we do advertise this facility as one of Richmond's heritage assets, this historic site is a federally owned facility operated by The Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society. Visit the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society site for more information.
Group tours can be arranged year round. To book your visit in advance please call 604-664-9009. All buildings are wheelchair accessible
