    Area Data

    People who want a laid back lifestyle and relaxing atmosphere can consider Mission as a great option. Rising up from the Fraser River and into the foothills of the Coast Mountain Range, Mission offers an awe-inspiring vantage point of the Fraser Valley. The abundance of rivers, lakes and lands serve as a constant reminder of the deep-rooted history.

    Situated on the north bank of the Fraser River, backing onto mountains and lakes overlooking the Central Fraser Valley 80 km (50 mi) southeast of Vancouver. The eastern boundary of the municipality roughly coincides with the division between the Mission upland and the alluvial floodplain of Hatzic Prairie, which resembles much of the rest of the Fraser Valley Lowland. The unincorporated communities from Hatzic eastwards through Dewdney and Nicomen Island to Deroche are part of the social and commercial matrix centred on Mission but have never joined the municipality, as is also the case with areas north of Hatzic and Dewdney.

    If you want to invest in real estate, Mission is one of the best locations to consider because of its affordable housing prices. Its population has grown to 41,519 (census 2021).

    History

    Mission was originally incorporated as a district municipality in 1892, and has grown to include additional villages and rural areas over the years, adding the original Town of Mission City, long an independent core of the region, in 1969. It was once the heart of the berry industry in the Fraser Valley, with "Home of the Big Red Strawberry" as Mission's slogan in the 1930s and into the 1940s.

    It is the site of Canada's first train robbery, BC's first rail link to the United States, one of the earliest Hydroelectric dams and Fraser River bridges, and is home to the oldest known First Nations' archaeological site in British Columbia. Mission is part of the traditional, ancestral, and unceded a territory of the Sto:lo First Nations people.
