Welcome to the Mission Community Archives online database which enables you to search and browse digitized records and information about its holdings.
Operated by the Mission District Historical Society, the Mission Community Archives serves as a central repository for all community records that document the social, economic, and political development of the District of Mission and the Fraser Valley Regional District Electoral Areas: I (Dewdney-Hatzic Island), J (Nicomen Island - Deroche), K (Lake Errock) and L (McConnell Creek-Hatzic Prairie).
The holdings include the records of individuals and families, arts and community organizations, clubs and local businesses and some local government. The archives also maintain a small reference collection pertaining to the history of the municipality, genealogical research, and the administration of archives.
At present, the online database only includes a portion of our holdings and therefore we encourage you to contact the Archives if you come across a name, place, or subject for which you find no records or images. We are continuing to add content as our resources allow.
Use the resources from the Quick Links Menu to help you navigate the site and discover the rich and varied materials housed in the Community Archives documenting Mission’s storied past.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial assistance of the District of Mission and Province of British Columbia through the British Columbia | Canada 150–Celebrating B.C. Communities and their Contributions to the Canada grant program for the original funding in support of our online digital repository.
