North Pacific Cannery on Skeena River: Nature, culture, and over a decade of North Coast life forms the rich landscape of this historical tour. Engaging stories of those who fished and worked at British Columbia’s North Coast canneries will come to life as this National Historic Site (established in 1889) connects visitors with an integral part of British Columbia's industrial, economic, and cultural history. Experience a demonstration of a canning line (the process of filling aluminum cans with a beverage), see a salmon processing line, emerge in the wilderness, along the breezy river's edge, and take in the rich history of the cannery's boardwalks, industrial buildings and worker housing.
