Steveston Heritage Sites

The village of Steveston in Richmond BC, was once a booming fishing and canning centre on Canada’s west coast during the late 1800s to early 1900s. Located at the mouth of the Fraser River, millions of salmon were caught on their way to spawn further up river, as had been done by the Indigenous communities who fished these waters for thousands of years.

The fishing industry brought immigrants to the community from many different countries to find work as fishermen, cannery workers, boatbuilders, and the many services needed to sustain the industry.

Visit Steveston today, to find a colourful, multicultural community with multiple heritage sites within walking distance, a public Fisherman’s Wharf, and home to Canada’s largest smallcraft commercial fishing harbour.
