Ceepeecee (from the initials CPC for the Canadian Packing Corporation), on the west coast of Vancouver Island, near Nootka Island, was the site of a sardine cannery from about 1926 to about 1951. The cannery was built after large quantities of sardines (pilchard) appeared in the area and was abandoned after they ceased to appear. The nearest populated places are Tahsis and Zeballos.[1]
