‘Tis the season to volunteer


With the holiday season upon us, it’s that time of the year when we begin to think of giving to others. But have you ever thought of giving the gift of volunteering time?

Since so many people are facing a difficult economic situation, you might want to consider giving time to a cause such as the Canadian Cancer Society, which is a gift to thousands of people affected by cancer.

The Canadian Cancer Society has a variety of volunteer positions available, which include leadership, event committee, and short term roles. With events such as Relay For Life, Daffodil Days, Door to Door and Cops for Cancer, there are many ways to get involved.

Two in five Canadians will develop cancer during their lifetime. The Canadian Cancer Society is championing the cancer cause by funding outstanding cancer research, providing caring support to those living with the disease, and leading critical prevention programs.

The Society couldn’t do it without the generous support and valued time contributed by over 5,900 volunteers in the Greater Vancouver Region. We invite you to expand your knowledge, skills, experience and community spirit by considering a leadership role at the Canadian Cancer Society.

Now is the time to make cancer history. You’ll be connecting with one of Canada’s strongest, most respected organizations, with a vast network of volunteers. Your involvement can have a powerful effect.

While volunteering, you will receive personal satisfaction, meet inspirational people, and lead innovative life-changing initiatives. You’ll also have a lot of fun and develop friendships that you’ll remember forever.

You have your own reason for wanting to make cancer history, and we need you!

To volunteer in your community, please call me at 1-866-770-4809.

Commendable effort

On behalf of Tourism Whistler and our Board of Directors, I would like to thank Whistler Blackcomb, along with the RMOW’s emergency response crews, for their speedy reaction time and thorough support efforts for our resort guests during and after the recent Excalibur Gondola incident.

Whistler Blackcomb’s track record of safety is exemplary; their focus on the guest experience first rate; and their quick actions and genuine concern in a time of crisis unparalleled.

Thank you for your ongoing care and support!
