Whistler Housing Authority
The Whistler Housing Authority (WHA), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Resort Municipality of Whistler, manages the resident housing program throughout the valley.
The WHA was formed in October 1997 with a mandate to oversee the development of employee restricted housing in Whistler through the use of the Employee Housing Fund. The WHA also performs the functions of two other agencies: the Whistler Valley Housing Corporation, a municipal corporation that is legally responsible for employee restricted housing developments, and the Whistler Valley Housing Society (WVHS), a volunteer, non-profit society formed under the Societies Act as a legal entity qualified for acquiring Canadian Mortgage and Housing Commission (CMHC) financing.
The WHA board of directors is comprised of seven Council appointed community members. Three of these members also sit, along with four other directors, on the Whistler Valley Housing Society board.
