Responsible for three of Whistler's 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games Venues: the Whistler Sliding Centre, Whistler Olympic Park, and the Whistler Athletes' Centre.
Board of Directors
Whistler Sport Legacies (WSL) is a registered Society, Incorporated under the Society Act on March 14, 2007. WSL is funded in part by the Games Operating Trust, a trust fund established prior to the 2010 Winter Games by the Province of BC and the Government of Canada to support Whistler Sport Legacies and the Richmond Olympic Oval in the pursuit of high performance sport development and facility operation, which is supplemented by revenues earned from recreational activities. The creation and membership of WSL and the Games Operating Trust were set out in a Multiparty Agreement between Canada, British Columbia, Vancouver, Whistler, Canadian Olympic Committee, and the Canadian Paralympic Committee.
WSL is governed by seven member organizations - the members include the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee, Province of BC, Squamish Nation, Lil'wat Nation, RMOW, and VANOC. Each member appoints a volunteer director to the Board. There is no fixed term for a director, and members choose who and how long a director sits representing them. The Board ensures WSL’s mandate is achieved, and provides direction and approval of an annual budget and business plan.
