Whistler Centre for Sustainability

The Whistler Centre for Sustainability (WCS) will lead the community engagement component of the WhistlerOCP update, getting you involved in your OCP update. WCS manages the Whistler2020 comprehensive sustainability plan and process on behalf of the Whistler community.

Through the Whistler2020 community task force process, WCS staff have facilitated the creation of over 600 grassroots community actions in support of our shared Whistler2020 vision. It is this grassroots, community engagement experience that will make Whistler's OCP update a viable document that will help shape our community over the next five years.
