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.

Read the interesting story behind the Mission street that was named after pioneers who homesteaded in Hatzic and constructed their house from logs felled on their property here. You can also discover the fascinating stories behind the names of many other streets in Mission.
