Mission

Situated on a coastal mountain slope overlooking the lush valley of the Fraser River, Mission is a rapidly growing rural centre. Its resplendent mountains, idyllic meadows and natural forest settings blend well with a hometown feeling. The West Coast Express commuter rail offers easy access to many urban centres. Mission is the site of Canada’s first train robbery, BC’s first rail link to the United States and the oldest First Nations archeological site in BC.
