The following statement was adopted by Mission Council on March 7th, 2011:

The District of Mission takes pride in the many steps it has completed to create a livable community.

We have done so by ensuring that economic, social, cultural and environmental criteria are fully considered in all decision-making.

In striving to build on our successes in creating a livable community, we are committed to making decisions that do not compromise our future and recognize that there is urgency, but that change takes time.

The principles, objectives and strategies that guide our decisions can be found in our key strategic plans – Official Community Plan, Social Development Plan, Economic Development StrategyEmployment Lands StrategyCultural Master PlanHeritage Strategic PlanParks, Trails and Bicycle Master PlanMunicipal Forest Plans and the Environmental Charter.
