Whistler seeks input to shape the Accessibility Action Plan

Publication Date: June 9, 2022


Engagement aims to ensure continuous improvement in Whistler’s accessibility

The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is inviting community feedback on the draft actions that will form the Accessibility Action Plan (AAP). Gathering feedback from the community on the proposed actions is an important step to ensure continuous improvement in Whistler’s accessibility.

To shape the AAP, input on the draft actions will be collected through the RMOW’s online engagement tool, found at whistler.ca/engage, as well as a display and input station set up at the Whistler Public Library.  Input will be collected June 9 to 23. For assistance using the online tool, contact Sarah Tipler, Accessibility Coordinator at 604-935-8170 or planning@whistler.ca.

The RMOW strives to make its workplace, services and infrastructure accessible and welcoming to everyone. The RMOW works with resort community partners and the Accessibility and Inclusion Committee to identify and implement accessibility improvements within municipal services, programs, goods and facilities. These commitments extend to residents and resort guests with visible or non-visible disabilities.

“We have made some positive moves towards a more accessible and inclusive community. However, it is important to continue listening to those with lived experience to reshape our physical environment and change perceptions”, says Mayor Jack Crompton. “We encourage community input on the Accessibility Action Plan to ensure the proposed actions will help to make Whistler more accessible and welcoming to people with disabilities.”
