Heather Paul

Community-minded Leader

Heather Paul currently serves as executive director of the Squamish and Lil’wat Cultural Centre (SLCC), showcasing the two original First Nations communities of the Whistler area.

Her community involvement has led her to take on the role of a torchbearer in the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, craft a thriving theatre company, serve as the chair of the Arts Whistler board of directors, and be named Whistler’s 2017 Citizen of the Year at the Whistler Chamber of Commerce’s Excellence Awards.

In her ongoing work at the SLCC, Heather continues empowering Cultural Ambassadors because, as they represent the original stewards of the land, they view their work as “a calling, not a job. They are the voice of their ancestors.”
