About the Neighbourhood
Steveston Heritage Sites

The historic village of Steveston was once a thriving centre of salmon fishing and canning, earning it the nickname “Salmonopolis”. First Nations peoples have harvested the land and waters of this region for thousands of years prior to this settlement. Fisheries and canneries employed immigrants from around the world, including Europe, China, and Japan. Learn about the unique heritage of this intersection of cultures by visiting these Steveston historic sites of interest.
