Fast facts on Bylaw

During the Games the Bylaw department will have 10 Bylaw Officers. Their job will be to ensure smooth operations and help the RMOW deliver extraordinary Games.

For example, Bylaws dealing with increased traffic in Whistler during the 2010 Winter Games are dependent on the municipality being able to enforce them. That's where our Bylaw Officers step in.  Bylaw Officers support our community and deliver efficient and effective village operations for everyone.
