From the bustling docks of Steveston to remote inlets on the northern Coast, Japanese Canadians have made unique contribution to fishing in BC both before and after the war. Their story is intertwined with the labour and political history of BC – before 1949, the province had some of the toughest racial exclusion laws in Canada. With pride and perseverance, the Nikkei community proved their skill as fishermen and cannery works, and built a new life as Canadian citizens.
