City of Toronto invites residents to share their views on regulation of short-term accommodation rentals
The City of Toronto is considering regulations for short-term rental of accommodation and is inviting members of the public to share their views at meetings on March 28 and April 12. Residents will also be able to fill out an online survey to provide their views on the proposed regulations.
The term "short-term rental" typically describes rentals that occur over a period of less than 30 days. Popular online platforms such as AirBnB, Homeaway and VRBO facilitate bookings and payments for short-term rentals.
The first consultation meeting will be held in the council chamber of North York Civic Centre, 5100 Yonge St., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28.
The second consultation meeting will be held in Committee Room 2 at City Hall, 100 Queen St. W., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12.
Key areas of discussion include quality of life (income/noise/safety), housing availability and affordability, economic development and tourism, and taxation.
