On Zoom: in light of the latest mandates, we will host this event on Zoom.

The pandemic changed everything. And we know that inequities across Whistler were highlighted alongside mental and physical health needs and the long-term suitability of Whistler for aging well.

On September 22, a panel of local experts will share what they know about pandemic-related pressures on seniors living, working and playingin Whistler.

Later, participants will move to facilitated breakout room discussions for the opportunity to make connections and engage in conversations that have the potential change the outlook for seniors living in and moving into the Whistler area.

The Vital Cafe panel was chosen to help inform participants on key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): # 3 Good Health and Well-Being, #10 Reduced Inequities and #11 Sustainable Communities and Cities . The panel of local experts includes:

  • Kathy White, Mature Action Committee Chair
  • Cathy Jewett, Municipal Councilor
  • Sue Lawther, Active Volunteer
  • Karin Kausky, Family Physician at Whistler Medical Clinic

Thank you to our sponsors for making this important conversation possible in the midst of a pandemic.

Vital Signs 2021

The Vital Signs volunteer committee is actively collecting data for the 2021 Vital Signs report.

Releasing early 2022, the report gives a snapshot of Whistler life while identifying trends to inspire knowledge into action.

Sustainable Development Goals

Whistler Community Foundation strives to help our local communities reach targets defined by the Sustainable Development Goals.

For the last few years, we have been using the goals in our Vital Signs program. In 2021, we are proud to say grant applicants submitted applications focused on helping our communities reach these goals.

Below, you’ll find the sustainable development goals that acutely pertain to families living, working and schooling in Whistler.
