Notice to all property owners, property managers and merchants in Whistler Village
The winter season is with us again and the Resort Municipality of Whistler would like to take this opportunity to remind all owners, property managers and merchants in Whistler Village of the importance of keeping the walkways, stairs and landings of stairs adjacent to their stores and properties free of ice and snow. It is essential that customers and guests visiting the Village feel safe and comfortable in being able to travel freely about the area. In order to ensure that the maintenance of the previously mentioned areas is consistent throughout the Village area, Municipal Council enacted BYLAW NO. 836, 1991. This is a bylaw to amend PROPERTY MAINTENANCE BYLAW NO. 810, 1990.

Adopt a Highway
The provincial Adopt a Highway program has recently been re-instated in the Sea to Sky Corridor, and Whistler organizations and businesses are encouraged to participate in the program by “adopting” a section of Highway 99.
Adopt a Highway is a Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) program, which provides non-profit and for-profit organizations with opportunities to assist with litter removal and aesthetic improvements, while promoting local stewardship of public highways. Read more.
