Networking and peer connections for newcomers to Canada..

Whistler Multicultural Society supports newcomers and immigrants through online and in-person networks across the Sea to Sky.

Pemberton Multicultural Network immigrants and locals together to celebrate our cultural differences and foster connections among us through food and cultural sharing. 

Get involved in food sharing, help out in the community garden where we grow vegetables used in different cultural cooking, share a cultural activity, or join a wellness workshop. Whatever your interests, we'd love to meet you.

Whistler Multicultural Network is a group of local immigrants and newcomers that meets, networks, and plays together. It was created by local immigrants to provide others in the same situation with the connections, support, and knowledge to help them adapt to life in Canada and Whistler and opportunities to get more involved locally.

Whether you’re new in town, or a long-term local, meet, support and learn from other immigrants and newcomers.
