Gulf of Georgia Cannery, originally uploaded by selihpxe8.

The cannery was opened in 1894 and was the largest cannery in BC until 1902 packing more than 2.5 million cans of salmon in 1897.

The Federal Government purchased the site in 1984 and was purchased by Parks Canada.

It opened its doors to the public in 1994 in celebration of the centennial of the building. It is now designated as a National Historic Site.
