The District of Mission is nestled on a southern coastal mountain slope, overlooking the lush valley of the mighty Fraser River. Founded in 1892, Mission, BC was originally inhabited by the Stó:lō First Nations people, and today this rapidly growing and dynamic community is home to a population of over 38,000 residents. Ideally situated, Mission is just a 15-minute drive from the US border, and approximately 70 kilometers east of the City of Vancouver. Mission is surrounded by the incredible beauty of mountainous vistas and natural forest settings. Our climate is warm in the summer and mild and wet in the winter. Flowers bloom most of the year, as the area is naturally hospitable to a wide variety or plant life and vegetation. Topographically, Mission enjoys an immense variation of hillsides and gullies which maintain natural neighborhood enclosures, spectacular views, and a sense of permanence. Mission has a unique and colorful history. It is the site of Canada’s first train robbery, B.C.’s first rail link to the United States, one of the earliest Hydro-electric dams and Fraser River bridges, and is home to the oldest known First Nations’ archaeological site in British Columbia. The municipality has an open and welcoming attitude to its citizens and businesses, new residents, investors and visitors alike, creating a sense of community for all. Come and see for yourself why Mission is “the Jewel in the Valley”.
