The Resort Municipality of Whistler’s goal is to work with community stakeholders to achieve appropriate and affordable housing for the resort’s workforce

1. Tourist Accommodation Review

The Tourist Accommodation Review ensures residential homes are not being used for nightly rental.

2. Home Run Program

The Home Run Program matches resort businesses with property owners.

3. Development Cost Charge Update

An update to the Employee Housing Service Charge Bylaw is underway to ensure commercial, industrial and tourist accommodation developments are contributing towards new employee housing.

4. Build additional employee restricted housing

RMOW plans to expand Cheakamus Crossing to build more employee-restriced housing for the permanent resident workforce. In addition, Whistler Housing Authority continues to work on other housing projects.

6. Infill housing opportunities

A new and expanded infill program is being considered to permit the addition of a new resident restricted dwelling to existing residential properties.
