The number of MSP holders utilizing services in Whistler has been steadily increasing from 2011, reaching its peak of 10,917 in 2016.

Why we monitor this

Medical Services Plan (MSP) utilization rates provide some insight into the health of Whistler’s population, based on the proportion of residents who use available medical services. As actual health statistics are difficult to access and track at the local level, this indicator was selected as a proxy measure.

What this measures

Medical Services Plan (MSP) card holders have access to a variety of health services provided at facilities within British Columbia. This measure captures the proportion of MSP holders living in Whistler who used at least one service in a given year. The MSP department uses April to March as the calendar year.
