In 1997, the Whistler Housing Authority (link is external) (WHA) was established as an arm of the municipal government. Its mandate was to oversee the development of price-controlled real estate available to only resident employees and their families.
For over 15 years, Whistler has been pioneering affordable housing and it's a model that is now in demand across the country. WHA oversees the development, administration and management of resident restricted housing in Whistler. The WHA continues to maintain and augment its inventory of resident restricted housing so that both rental and ownership accommodation are available and affordable for local income earners and retirees in perpetuity.
