How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted your life?
The Mission Community Archives in partnership with the Mission Museum
wants to document and preserve your first-hand experiences during these unprecedented times through their Life at TWO Metres
The Community Archives invites all those who live and/or work in Mission and the Fraser Valley Regional District Electoral Areas: I (Dewdney-Hatzic Island), J (Nicomen Island-Deroche), K (Lake Errock) and L (McConnell Creek-Hatzic Prairie) to submit digital and hard-copy materials documenting their response to the evolving new normal including: pandemic social bubbles. Submissions can include: personal accounts, photographs, audiovisual materials, ephemera (printed materials), and oral histories.
We are living in momentous times that will be studied in the future. What is collected will inform and be appreciated by generations to come. Contribute your experiences and insights to Life at TWO Metres
and be a part of history.
Temporary Closure of Archives
Due to the evolving situation with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and the need for social distancing to help minimize its transmission, the Mission District Historical Society is temporarily closing the Mission Community Archives to visitors and researchers until further notice. The health, safety, and well-being of our community, including our dedicated staff and volunteers, is a top priority.
At present, the Archivist intends to provide services to the public remotely as best she can by telephone, email, and other digital platforms. Any change to these coronavirus-related measures will be posted. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented public health challenge.

the archives or leave a telephone message and you will be contacted as soon as possible.
