A BRIEF HISTORY OF MISSION, BRITISH COLUMBIA
The District of Mission is situated on the north bank of the Fraser River. Mission is located on Highway
#7, approximately 70 km east of the City of Vancouver, just north of the US/Canada border.
Mission has an average January temperature of 2.3°C and an average July temperature of 17.6°C. The
average annual rainfall is 1,789 mm and the average annual snowfall is 85 cm.
The population of the District Municipality of Mission numbers approximately 34,505.

YESTERDAY AND TODAY
In 1861, an Oblate priest, Father Fourquet, established a mission on the present site. During the mid
1880’s, large-scale development began after the CPR was completed and a bridge built across the Fraser
River. The community known as Mission Junction sprang up. Renamed Mission City in 1922, the
community amalgamated with the old district of Mission to form the present municipality. The District
of Mission has two main neighbourhoods, Mission and Hatzic, and four smaller neighbourhoods:
Steelhead, Stave Falls, Silverdale, and Ruskin.
Today, Mission’s economy is based on forestry and the manufacturing of the wood products. Agriculture
also supports the economy especially in the dairying, fruit and vegetable growing.
