Of the 80 canneries that once lined the coast of British Columbia, only one remains. St. Jean’s Cannery and Smokehouse is owned by a partnership of First Nations including Ditidaht, Huu-ay-aht, Uchucklesaht, Ucluelet, and Kyuquot-Checkleset. The business continues to change with the times. St. Jean's is the only cannery that provides canned-in-Canada wild Pacific salmon and tuna on grocery store shelves
