Whiting Peak is an unofficial name for a mountain in British Columbia, Canada. It has an elevation of 2,524 metres (8,281 ft) above sea level and is one of Canada's many ultra prominent peaks.

The name "Whiting Peak" is derived from its being the high point of a group of mountains bordered by two bodies of water. Whiting Lake lies to the east and the Whiting River runs to the west of this group.[2]
