The Pemberton and District Recreation Service is committed to creating accessible and inclusive opportunities for everyone.


LIFE stands for “Leisure Involvement for Everyone.” The program is designed to provide healthy lifestyle opportunities to residents who face financial challenges by offering discounted program fees to low-income families. 

Who is Eligible?

All permanent Pemberton and Area C residents who meet the annual family income limitations may apply. Total income for all adults in the household must be included in the application. 

How Can I Apply?

Applications are available through the online form, at the Pemberton and District Community Centre or download the PDF format application form. Complete one application per family and return it to the registration desk with proof of residency and proof of household income.

Take this opportunity to make a healthy lifestyle a priority for you and your family. 

What are the benefits of the LIFE Program?

  • 50% off 1 program per season per individual (some exceptions may apply)
  • One 10-time fitness centre pass per family per year 

Leisure Buddy Program

Pemberton is committed to having every child and youth included in the sport and recreations programs and has partnered with Whistler Adaptive. Trained volunteer "buddies" are provided through Whistler Adaptive for kids who need a little extra support to have great sport experience.

If your child has diverse needs and/or struggles to participate in group programs, they will likely benefit from having a Whistler Adaptive buddy accompany them.

Programs currently available through the Pemberton and District Community Centre in Winter 2020: Soccer Tots, Hip Hop 1, Floor Hockey, Youth on Weights, Zumba
