Fee for Service agreements provide funding to organizations that provide services that Whistler Council considers necessary or desirable for Whistler. This allows the RMOW to leverage the skills and expertise of local non-profit groups to deliver services at a reduced cost compared to the municipality delivering those services directly.
The Fee for Service program moves the resort community towards the goals articulated in the Official Community Plan.
2021 Fee for Service agreements
The Fee for Service agreements for 2021 were approved by Whistler Council at the Regular Public Meeting on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.

- Arts Whistler – $500,000

2022 Fee for Service agreements
In November 2021, Whistler Council voted in favour of establishing a council policy that will standardize how the Fee for Service program is applied across many non-profit organizations in Whistler.
Going forward, the formalized program will encompass organizations that receive funding, as well as value-in-kind contributions for facilities or programming spaces in buildings owned by the RMOW.
With the new policy now adopted, the RMOW will start the process to establish new agreements for 2022, including requesting, receiving and reviewing applications from each of the organizations considered part of the Fee for Service program.
