Britannia Shipyards

October 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

FREE

Britannia Shipyards is an authentic representation of a once thriving community of canneries, boat yards, residences and stores.

Many of the buildings date back to 1885 and tell the stories of multi-ethnic residents and workers at the Britannia Cannery and Britannia Shipyards: Chinese, European, First Nations and Japanese. This collection of buildings has national value and was designated a National Historic Site in 1992 by the National Historic Sites and Monuments Board.

This area is well known to some and a new experience for others.

Should there be heavy rain, this will be canceled.

Please make note of the start times for this field trip as we are bound by the Winter Hours of the shipyard.
