Cassiar Cannery near Prince Rupert
Salmon rules at BC’s Cassiar Cannery, on the Skeena River, south of Prince Rupert. One of the longest continuously operated salmon canneries on Canada’s west coast—once home to cookhouses, machine shops, bunkhouses, blacksmiths, and more—Cassiar spotlights its historic past with overnights in refurbished residences, set on pilings above the tide. For an enlightening tour of an intact cannery town, you can visit neighbouring North Pacific Cannery.
