Event Details

Explore the once thriving canneries and fishing communities of the lower Skeena River and Chatham Sound.

For three days and four nights you will be immersed in the history of this region as we spend our nights in the newly renovated manager’s houses on the site of Cassiar Cannery. This will be our base for exploring the area as we leave each morning by jet boat on a new adventure.

This seldom explored area is home to some of the most unique and interesting historical sites. Over 20 canneries once lined the bank of the Skeena and ocean shores, but they have all since closed and only remnants remain. The history from the 100 years of operation is rich and plentiful as we get to see for ourselves the locations of all these sites.

This is a UNBC Continuing Studies program and you contact is:
