Reference Services is augmented by outreach programs, designed to stimulate increased public awareness of the value of the archives and its resources. At present, outreach activities include:
- guided tours of the archives to members of the public within and outside the community;
- exhibits to stimulate knowledge, use and preservation of archival materials in the community;
- information seminars and workshops about the Archives; &
- educational programs for students and the general public
To assist those interested in learning more about the community's rich history, the Community Archives has online publications on people and events of historical interest.
Throughout the year the Mission Community Archives creates exhibits and displays featuring archival materials from its holdings. Each exhibit provides the public with the opportunity to learn about the community's history and the rich assortment of archival materials housed in the Archives.
Recent exhibits by the Archives include: COLD PLAY: Winter Leisure and Sports; THIS IS HOME: Mission's Historic Neighbourhoods, TURN ON THE JUICE: The Development of Electricity in Mission and Making [kuh-nek-shuhns]: Mission's Communication Heritage
