Coastal mountains, sprawling farmland, and the imposing Fraser River give Mission instant visual appeal.

Yet beyond the surface, this rural Fraser Valley community also boasts a thriving cultural scene and numerous recreational activities.

Mission (pop. 35,262) lies just 70km/44mi east of Vancouver, an hour drive via the Lougheed Highway (Highway 7). Situated on a hillside above the Fraser River, the area is famed for its fishing, as mighty sturgeon and salmon abound in these waters.

Within Mission's area of 253 sq km/98 sq mi, visitors can discover artists and art galleries, historic and heritage sites, and a colourful selection of festivals and events. Play a round of golf, watch drag racing, go mountain biking, or try shopping in Mission's historic downtown.
