Sights and Stories: School Programs of The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site offers programs that cover the big ideas and core competencies found in the newest social studies, science, and First Nations studies curriculum. We offer interactive programs which include examples of the demands on natural resources during the early 20th century, and the people and environmental influences that helped build this community. We invite you to come be immersed in the sights and stories of the historic cannery and the picturesque village of Steveston, known as the birthplace of Canada’s west coast fishing industry. Learn about the themes and objectives offered through our programs, and the relationships between our shared local and social histories.
