Can Foreigners (non-residents of Canada) Buy Property in Whistler?


There is no restriction on who can buy a property in Whistler.   The 2 year restriction for foreign buyers are related to towns with larger populations and Whistler is still a small town!  Did you know that our population is just under 14,000 full time residents and approximately 10,000 more of second home owners?  We can host up to 60,000 people at prime tourism seasons (including our regular population).

Based on the 2021 census information, Whistler is not located within a "Census Metropolitan Area" nor a "Census Agglomeration" - both of which are populations of more than 100,000.
