Located at the mouth of the Skeena River, only 25 minutes from Prince Rupert, Cassiar Cannery is surrounded by outstanding wilderness beauty and biodiversity in some of the most favoured fishing grounds in BC.
For the thousands of residents over Cassiar’s history it is a home, a job, a way of life – of friends, family and fond memories. It was a place of big buildings, noise, activity and as many recall ‘the smell of money’. A fast current from the mighty Skeena River coupled with big tides pushed and pulled the boats up Inverness Passage to the mouth of the Skeena and back again. There were boats everywhere. There were salmon.
