Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. We run the Whistler Chapter of Earthsave Canada, which is a non-profit organisation that promotes a plant-based diet for health, environment and animals.
In Whistler we have monthly vegan potlucks and also do vegan dine-outs and movie screenings. You can view our events by clicking here to see our Facebook events page. (You can view this page without being a Facebook member and you do not need to RSVP to the events unless specified in the event details.)
We hope that you will find our restaurant list helpful and if you have any questions on where to eat, feel free to get in touch.
You can also follow our Facebook page for updates and join the Whistler Vegans facebook group to connect with like minded people in Whistler. We also have a mailing list where we occasionally send out emails to let you know about specific events you might be interested in.
We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your time in Whistler!

Let’s get out there and show our new Prime Minister that Climate Change is an issue his country cares about!
On November 29th millions of people will be marching in over 1600 communities around the world to demand that politicians acknowledge that climate change is a crisis. People are rallying before the start of the United Nations Climate Change Summit (COP21) in the Global Climate March, which is expected to be the largest climate mobilization ever.
There is a march organised in Vancouver and we want as many people as possible to come from Whistler to help make this march HUGE and awesome.
We’re hoping to hire a bus from Whistler so we can all go together and reduce our impact. We’ll be going for a late lunch after the march before heading back to Whistler. Please go to the Facebook event page and post on the wall if you’d like to carpool. (We recognise that we’re contributing to climate change by driving to Vancouver but we feel in this instance the benefits outweigh the cost and we’re trying to make the transportation as low impact as we can.)
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead

Speciesism: The Movie is an eye opening and thought provoking documentary that questions our preconceived ideas about animals, and whether being human is good enough reason for human animals to have greater moral rights than non-human animals. Earthsave Whistler and … Continue reading →

Have you heard the news? Raven’s Nest on Whistler Mountain at Whistler Blackcomb will have a vegetarian menu this year! It will be managed by passionately plant-based local Kristine Leise, with support from WB Executive Chef Wolfgang Sterr. We were so excited when we heard the news we nearly fell off our chairs. Huge thank you to Kristine, Wolfgang and Whistler Blackcomb for making this happen. We can’t wait to eat there!
