What it’s about

Offering commemoration opportunities within the Whistler Cemetery.

Whistler’s cemetery design and development respond to the sloped topography and preserve the tranquil forested nature of the site, while providing a greater range of service options.

The municipality has owned and operated a cemetery since 1986. A plan has been developed for the cemetery site that maintains the natural forested character of the site and meets the resort community’s long-term needs.
