Noise Bylaw

Noise is part of life, but too much noise can disruptive and harmful.

How much noise is too much? Whistler’s Noise Control Bylaw defines how much noise is acceptable, based on:

  • Where you are
  • Where the noise is coming from
  • What is making the noise
  • What time and day the noise is occurring
