Bears & Wildlife

Black bears and other wildlife are regulated under the provincial Wildlife Act. The City of Mission is responsible for the promotion of co-existence and conflict prevention through education. The City of Mission is actively pursuing a Bear Smart status in partnership with WildSafeBC and the Conservation Officer Service. Please contact our Environmental Department at (604) 814-1264 if you have any bear awareness-related inquiries. Depending on availability, presentations can be arranged for schools and community groups.
