Short-Term Accommodation Rentals Consultation

UPDATE- PHASE 2

The City is considering new rules for short-term rentals, as directed by Executive Committee on June 19, 2017.

What is a short-term rental?

The term “short-term rental” typically describes rentals that occur over a short period of time (e.g. less than 30 days). Popular online platforms, such as Airbnb, Flipkey, Homeaway, VRBO and Roomorama facilitate bookings and payments for short-term rentals. Short-term rentals may occur in houses, townhouses, second suites, condominiums and rental apartment buildings; and may be operated by both property owners and tenants.
