The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is committed to working inclusively and collaboratively with resort partners to provide equitable treatment to people with disabilities regarding the use and benefit of municipal services, programs, goods and facilities in a manner that respects their dignity and that is equitable in relation to the broader public. The resort community also strives to continue to provide residents and visitors from around the world, regardless of age or ability, with a seamless resort experience based not only on accessibility, but also on inclusivity. These commitments extend to residents and visitors with visible or non-visible disabilities.
Whistler implements new dynamic accessibility icon
Municipal facilities will soon see an updated International Symbol of Access. The updated icon exchanges the static image of a person in a wheelchair with a person in a wheelchair in motion. This important update puts the person ahead of the disability and reframes the conversation around ability, and promoting access and inclusion for people of all abilities.
