Street Stories

Have you ever wondered where your street got its name? Mission is one of the few B.C. communities that continue to name streets after its citizens. As such, our street names are rich with local history.

Our street names connect us to those who went before; pioneers who hacked their way through acres of brush to clear land for their homes, entrepreneurs who established businesses to service the growing community, local men and women who served selflessly to preserve our freedom, and visionary citizens who wanted to make Mission a better place to live. These are people who, through hard work and community involvement, made a name for themselves in Mission's history.

Mission is growing so rapidly, many residents know little or nothing about this rich history. Through Street Stories you will learn much about Mission's storied past. New stories will be posted regularly - watch for your street!
