Whistler Live! Partnerships

Whistler Live! is produced in partnership with the Resort Municipality of Whistler, the Government of Canada, the Whistler Arts Council, and Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC).


By working with the major national institutions for culture and sport, other government departments, and numerous partners and stakeholders, Canadian Heritage promotes creativity, innovation, linguistic duality and diversity across the country.

The Department's activities are based on three major pillars:

  • Canadian artistic expressions and cultural content created and accessible at home and abroad
  • A shared sense of Canadian identity
  • Canadian participation and excellence in sport.


The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is the local government in Whistler governed by an elected Council, and administered by an executive team and staff on behalf of 10,000 residents and 2 million annual visitors. 

Whistler is proud to be the Host Mountain Resort for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.  It will be the site of the alpine, Nordic, and sliding events for the 2010 Winter Games as well as the Whistler Live! program featuring daily entertainment, nightly medals ceremonies, and the Closing Ceremony for the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.

The vision of the RMOW is to be the premier mountain resort community as it moves toward sustainability.


The Whistler Arts Council is a registered charity established in 1982 with a mandate to build and integrate the arts into the fabric of Whistler. Annual events and programs include: Whistler Winter Arts Festival, Out of Bounds: Tales from the Backcountry, ArtWalk, Whistler Children's Art Festival, Whistler Art Workshops on the Lake, ARTrageous, Bizarre Bazaar, Whistler Street Entertainment and an annual Performance Series.

WAC also provides annual student art awards and bursaries, annual professional and emerging artist awards, member group grants, resources, and information to artists, the community and outside organizations. WAC acts as a referral service, information network and co-programmer incorporating local arts and culture in numerous other events and programs in the community. WAC also acts as the lead agent for implementing arts strategies within the Whistler2020-Comprehensive Sustainability Plan, including the integration of Sea-to-Sky Corridor artists in Whistler's 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games cultural programs.


The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) was established on September 30, 2003. The Committee's mandate is to support and promote the development of sport in Canada by planning, organizing, financing and staging the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

VANOC is guided by a 20-member board of directors nominated by the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, the City of Vancouver, the Resort Municipality of Whistler, the Canadian Olympic Committee, the Canadian Paralympic Committee and local First Nations.


The Vancouver 2010 mission is to touch the soul of the nation and inspire the world by creating and delivering an extraordinary Olympic and Paralympic experience with lasting legacies. The vision is to build a stronger Canada whose spirit is raised by its passion for sport, culture and sustainability.


Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad is a celebration of the contemporary imagination. A series of three multi-disciplinary festivals that grows in scope and scale from 2008 through 2010, this is the first time an Olympic Winter Games has hosted a Cultural Olympiad two years before Games time.

From artistic collaborations that fuse contrasting perspectives to emerging talents re-inventing the voice of contemporary Canada, the Cultural Olympiad has something for everyone. Working in close partnership with the creative community, this amazing showcase of Canadian and international arts and popular culture will feature an unparalleled variety of music, dance, theatre, visual arts, film, outdoor spectaculars and digital media experiences, as remarkable and diverse as the planet itself.


Omega is the Official Timekeeper of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Since 1932, Omega has delivered the official results at 22 Olympic Games. It ensures the accuracy of scoring and competition results, and that results are delivered promptly to the public at the venues and through broadcast, print and online media to audiences around the world.
