» North Pacific Cannery

Submitted What nominators are saying
16 days ago North Pacific Cannery is one of the main attractions of our region. This unique site offers tours to visitors of what life was like living in a remote area. The various multicultural groups that worked together to make a life for themselves. This National Historical site has come a long way in offering modest accommodations, great food, a venue for weddings and other celebrations and an exceptional experience of a salmon cannery.
21 days ago Offering both a distinctive North Coast visitor experience and lodging at the Bunkhouse Hostel, North Pacific offers the “full package” when it comes to tourism and accommodation. Its innate appeal as a National Historic Site has been constantly enhanced through conservation and restoration projects which provide on-the-job training to workers entering the skilled trades industry. The upgraded exhibits, tours and delicious selections at the Mess House Cafe share North Coast culture and history with thousands of visitors each year, including cruise passengers. As well, this year’s Intertidal Music Festival was a high-water mark in North Pacific’s history of creating appealing programming for its surrounding communities. I’m proud that we have such a treasure in our backyard, and believe it deserves to be recognized as such.
