Living in Mission
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 today is home to a population of some 38,000 residents.
Ideally situated, Mission is just a 15-minute drive from the US border, and approximately 70 kilometres east of the City of Vancouver. The West Coast Express rapid transit commuter rail also makes living in Mission a pleasant reality for a growing number of ex-Vancouverites. Mission enjoys an immense variation of hillsides and gullies which maintain natural neighbourhood enclosures, spectacular views, and provide an array of outdoor activity opportunities.
Mission has an open and welcoming attitude to its citizens and businesses, new residents, investors and visitors alike making it "the Jewel in the Valley" and a desirable place to live.
