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

    City of Richmond staff and dedicated volunteers work together to preserve and restore the shipyard and surrounding buildings as an active wooden boat centre and waterfront park. Tour the oldest shipyard buildings in British Columbia, and take part in tours, programs and events as you experience the living history of fishing and boatbuilding on the Fraser River.

    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.
