Mission is the 13th largest municipality in British Columbia, with a population of 33,819 as of 2016. Mission's growth and development were influenced by its location between Vancouver and the U.S.-Canada border (the 49th parallel). It was once an important transfer point for goods travelling to and from New Westminster via the Fraser River Canyon route or downriver through Port Moody to Burrard Inlet. Mission City had a reputation during this period as being "wide open" due to prostitution occurring in hotels along 4th Street East; however, it has since been redeveloped into an area with many restaurants and shops that are popular with tourists visiting nearby ski resorts such as Mount Seymour Provincial Park on Blue Mountain across Indian Arm from downtown Mission. The city also serves visitors who come for day trips or vacations at places like Cultus Lake Provincial Park located just east of town off Highway 7A which provides access to hiking trails up onto Black Mountain (a peak overlooking Vancouver) where there is now a restaurant called "The Lookout".
