Mission, which was originally known as the municipality of Mission City, is a district municipality in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. It's located on the north bank of the Fraser River where it backs onto beautiful mountains and lakes overlooking the Central Fraser Valley. Mission is the 23rd largest municipality in British Columbia, with a population of 36,426 as of 2013.
Unlike many other Fraser Valley municipalities, Mission is mostly forested upland with only small floodplains lining the shore of the Fraser River. Mission was once regarded as the heart of the berry industry. So much so that the city's slogan was "Home of the Big Red Strawberry" in the 1930's and 1940's.
Over 40% of Mission is actually tree farm land, making it one of two communities with municipal tree farms. (Revelstoke BC being the second) Mission's renown tree farm celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008. It comprises much of the northern part of the district, including the area west of the Stave River, up to the district's northern boundary near the foot of Mount Robie Reid; a small sliver of Mission District is at the head of Alouette Lake, where many believe to actually be Maple Ridge.
The unincorporated communities from Hatzic eastwards through Dewdney and Nicomen Island toDeroche are part of the social and commercial matrix centred on Mission but have yet to join the official municipality. These surrounding areas and societies are built on dairy, berry and corn farming as well boast a large First Nations community. Learn more about Mission...
