Mission City is a small city located on the north bank of Fraser River, between the valleys and mountains that are overlooking the Central Fraser Valley and southeast of Vancouver, British Columbia. With a population of 38,883 according to 2016 Census Canada, Mission is a mostly forested upland city and farmlands, the main reasons why the city developed rapidly in the 18th and 19th century.

Besides the favorable land, Mission’s development was mostly because of the construction of the only Canada-US railway junction in BC. This junction meant that anyone traveling from the US would have to pass through Mission to get to Canada. Familiar with land development and the profit opportunities this brought, a millionaire called James Welton Horne seized this opportunity and invested his money to develop the perfect modern city of Mission. He hired as many workers and builders as he could find to build all the buildings a city would need and divided the city into 5,000 lots with 50 streets, similar to the American efficient city model. Other investors began constructing buildings and other facilities in the area, which attracted people in search of jobs. The cheap land prices and auction-type selling attracted even more investors for the “Great Land Sale” that took place on May 19, 1891, and thanks to the fast development that followed, Mission was incorporated as a district municipality in 1892.  

As it has been throughout history, Mission City’s biggest economies were forestry, hydroelectricity, and agriculture, and they still are to this day, with the recent addition of some manufacturing industries. Mission is also home to the second largest tree farm in Canada and holds the only municipal tree farm license in British Columbia. The city was once known as “Home of the Big Red Strawberry” due to the vast cultivation of berries and the summer Strawberry Festival, but after the devastating flood in 1948, this festival and industry were both abandoned. Various agricultural farmlands can be found spread out along the Fraser River, specifically the Dewdney-Deroche district. Although the main industries are forestry and agriculture, the largest employer are the school district and the municipality itself.

Because of the proximity to the Pacific Ocean, Mission’s climate is oceanic, which means a lot of rainfall throughout the year with a drying trend during summer.

Many residents consider buying a home in Mission because of the exceptional value they get. The city offers easy access to outdoor life, steady employment, and top-rated schools. When you compare this to other Canadian real estate regions Mission looks like a great place to invest in a property.
