Measuring Up with Community Partners

Whistler has signed on to Measuring Up, a program designed to assist municipalities and communities in British Columbia assess the degree to which their citizens with disabilities are active participants in community life.

Measuring Up is about creating an accessibility strategy that encompasses much more than a focus on just physical change to the environment.

Accessibility

The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is committed to working inclusively and collaboratively with resort partners to provide equal treatment to people with disabilities with respect to the use and benefit of municipal services, programs, goods and facilities in a manner that respects their dignity and that is equitable in relation to the broader public.

This commitment extends to residents and visitors with visible or non-visible disabilities.
