Canada has a long, rich history of boat building, from traditional wooden vessels to cargo ships and vessels up to 85,000 deadweight tons. British Columbia, a province on Canada's west coast, is also one of the largest smelters of aluminum in the world, which aids in enriching Canada's aluminum boat- building industry.
