With online platforms such as AirBnB and VRBO becoming popular accommodation options for both residents and visitors, the City is reviewing the existing bylaw regulations for short-term accommodations.
Short-term accommodations include all rental arrangements in a residential dwelling where the host receives compensation from a guest that stays less than 30 days. Examples include vacation rentals, bed and breakfasts, and AirBnBs.
Residents are invited to provide their input into the short-term accommodation review process by completing an online survey and/or attending the open house on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Frances Morrison Library.
