Sense of Place

The proportion of both permanent residents and second homeowners that were satisfied with the selection of arts, culture and heritage offerings fell to 81% and 85% respectively. While the responses were still predominantly positive, it shows a decline to levels that have not been seen since 2014. It is worth noting that 2018 and 2019 results were the strongest years on record, and 2021 was the first year to be impacted by the pandemic.

Why we monitor this

Whistler cultivates a genuine mountain culture that is integrated throughout the community, and is enhanced by the rich heritage and culture of the Squamish Nation and Lil’wat Nation, on whose unceded traditional lands our community sits. By monitoring the satisfaction with the selection of arts and culture offerings within Whistler, we can monitor resident sentiment to ensure that our programming and facilities meet expectations of our community.

What this measures

This indicator measures Whistler community members’ self-reported satisfaction with Whistler’s selection of arts, culture and heritage offerings as collected in the annual Community Life Survey.
