2017 FRASER RIVER HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE

GULF OF GEORGIA CANNERY SOCIETY

 

We are pleased to announce that the Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society will be inducted into the Fraser River Hall of Fame at the 25th annual Hall of Fame Gala on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site in Richmond, BC.

Constructed in 1894, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery was one of fifteen canneries that once lined the banks of the Fraser River in Steveston. The facility canned salmon until 1930 when it was repurposed as a net loft, fresh fish depot, and later as a herring reduction plant. After operating for 85 years, the facility was designated a national historic site and opened to the public in 1994.
