BEAR AWARE
Yes it is true! Whistler is in the middle of bear country and home to approximately 100 black bears. Bears are
typically active from mid-March through late fall. You must dispose of your garbage and recycling correctly in
bear-proof bins. Bears have a keen sense of smell and are attracted by food and garbage, even if stored in a
truck or car. Cooking and kitchen smells through open windows and doors, barbecuing, bird feeders, composts,
fruit trees, and dog food will also attract bears. Bears can climb stairs, ropes and trees, enter buildings, and
smash car windows or truck bed cabs to investigate.
•
•
•
Never feed a bear.
Never approach a bear for any reason.
If you see a bear in your neighborhood, bring your children and pets indoors. It is probably just passing
through.
If you come across a bear while walking,
• Stop.
• Remain calm.
• Never run. A bear can outrun you.
• Back up slowly facing the bear.
• Speak in a normal tone of voice so the bear can identify you and continue to back up.
• If a bear approaches, talk louder and wave your arms or a stick above your head. Escape to a secure
building or car, if possible. Climbing a small tree may be effective, but bears are agile climbers.
BEAR SMART
Whistler is currently working toward becoming a provincially designated bear-smart community. The Get Bear
Smart Society (GBS) is a registered Canadian charity that works hard to ensure people and bears safely and
respectfully coexist wherever their homes and home ranges overlap. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a proud
supporter of The Get Bear Smart Society.

Government Sales Tax Rebate:
Only non-Canadian programs are applicable to receive a GST rebate. This is a service we provide for our
clients at the hotel and is not a mandatory service.
Programs that do not include room accommodations on the master invoice will not be included in this tax
rebate program. We also do not offer this rebate for leisure programs such as incentives, golf trips, top
producers, weddings and catering only programs.
Please remember, the GST rebate form we ask be completed does not bind us to offer 100% GST rebate on
room accommodations and 50% on food & beverage charges. The purpose of this form is to offer GST rebates
if the program in question qualifies for these rebates. If you do not receive the rebates on your final invoice, it
is because your group did not qualify for it.
If you require additional information on this topic please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency website, GST
Information for the Travel and Convention Industry. http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pub/tg/rc4036/rc4036-08e.pdf
If you are coordinating an incentive program and requesting the food and beverage 50% exemption because you
are having a business meeting or two then you will need to get a GST ruling from Revenue Canada. You will
need to write a letter to Revenue Canada giving the details of the event and if a favorable ruling is received
please forward this to us so we could process the rebate. We cannot submit the request on your group’s behalf.
Requests may be submitted to:
