Explore Mission

Mission is an up and coming area of the Fraser Valley. It is a relatively small community nestled on a southern coastal mountain slope, overlooking the lush valley of the mighty Fraser River. The incredible beauty of mountainous vistas and natural forest settings surrounds the city of Mission. Mission is an ideal home for the trailblazers and nature lovers who enjoy peace and quiet, rather than the hustle and bustle you may find with other cities in the Lower Mainland. Mission is also known for its backcountry off-roading and 4x4ing adventures – there is never a lack of outdoorsy activities for you and your family!
