Resort Municipality of Whistler Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 407

The Act establishes the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Whistler Resort Association. The municipality is a district municipality within the meaning of the Community Charter and the Local Government Act and those Acts apply to the municipality unless there is an inconsistency between them and the Resort Municipality of Whistler Act or the regulations.

The association may levy assessments under its bylaws against the owners of resort land. Where an owner is in default, the association may issue a certificate showing the amount owing and register the certificate in the land title office in the same manner as a charge.

  • Assessment with Respect to Registered Rights of Way on Resort Land: Certificate may be registered in the land title office.
  • Effect of Registration: Certificate, once filed or registered, is a charge for the amount owing in favour of the association and has priority over other liens or charges except those created under the Builders Lien Act or those of the government, other than mortgages in favour of the government.
  • Electronic Submissions: On the Form 17 Charge, Notation or Filing, select Nature of Interest, Resort Municipality of Whistler—Certificate of Levy, and attach an image of the originally signed Certificate of Levy.
