The year 2017 marks the 125th anniversary of the incorporation of the District of Mission. This milestone was celebrated with the publication of a revised edition of a book on the community's history that was originally published in 1973.

Daphne Sleigh,a well-known BC historian and author, has mostly kept to the original authors' arrangement of material and choice of subject matter in the 1973 edition. CLICK HERE to read more and purchase your copy of Mission As It Was - a limited-edition book.

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. Read Street Stories and learn about Mission's storied past.
