The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) is seeking the community's feedback on its Accessibility Action Plan that is aimed at improving accessibility in the resort.
Feedback will be gathered through the RMOW's online engagement tool, found at whistler.ca/engage, as well as at a display station set up at the Whistler Public Library. Input will be collected until June 23.
In a release, the RMOW said it works with community partners and its Accessibility and Inclusion Committee to "identify and implement accessibility improvements within municipal services, programs, goods and facilities. These commitments extend to residents and resort guests with visible or non-visible disabilities."
“We have made some positive moves towards a more accessible and inclusive community. However, it is important to continue listening to those with lived experience to reshape our physical environment and change perceptions”, said Mayor Jack Crompton in the release. “We encourage community input on the Accessibility Action Plan to ensure the proposed actions will help to make Whistler more accessible and welcoming to people with disabilities.”
