Infrastructure work in the national historic site
Parks Canada is investing an unprecedented $3 billion dollars over five years to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. Investments in preservation, rehabilitation, and restoration of our national historic sites will protect our heritage and strengthen their appeal as destinations to celebrate our nation's achievements.
Important infrastructure upgrades will continue this summer at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site building. These upgrades are required to ensure this cherished community site remains safe and continues to be enjoyed for generations to come.
