Whistler Multicultural Society

Building Equitable Community

Whistler Multicultural Society's (WMS) vision is that newcomers, immigrants and all black and racialized people are resilient and are thriving. Our programs build cross-cultural interaction and connections, develop awareness and understanding of our local diversity, and seek to grow equity and inclusion.  We aim to build the voice and profile of newcomers, immigrants and equity-deserving indidividuals in our local society, and to develop community inclusion initiatives. 

Summer 2024.... it's going to be a busy one..

Resilience Advisory Committee

A busy summer ahead for our Resilience program... and lots of opportunities to get involved. Before you do anything else, click here to follow us on Instagram!

Join the Resilience Advisory Committee - it provides feedback and discussion on potential events and issues in Sea to Sky and helps us develop engagement events in our community. Next meeting is July 18.

We're looking for local immigrants to interview about their experiences in the Sea to Sky so we can show how cultural diversity adds to our community.

Contact our Resilience Coordinator if you have any questions, would like to share your experiences, or want to join our Advisory Committee. 

Multicultural summer camp 2024

Multicultural summer camps are returning for the fourth year from August 12 to 16. These camps for 7 to 12-year-olds provide a unique learning opportunity and multicultural experience which we hope will build a lifelong interest in cultural diversity and equity.

Each day, camp participants experience the language, food, art, crafts, traditions, history, games, and so much more from a different culture. Key to the day is cooking and eating a meal together from the culture being explored.

Led by local immigrants from each culture, the 2024 camps will introduce participants to Nepal, Slovakia, Philippines, Japan, and India.

To learn more, and to register your child, check out the camp website or contact camp lead facilitator, Yami Yeung.

Check the calendar for all events and join our online networks to keep updated...   Whistler - Pemberton - Squamish
