The topic of Short-term rentals (such as Airbnb) is back in the news. The city’s municipal licensing and standards (ML&S) dept. has released their proposals today. Highlights of the proposals are:
– Ban Torontonians from renting units unless it is their primary residence.
– Torontonians offering short-term rentals must be listed in a city-managed registry.
– Require that companies such as Airbnb be licensed.
– Change zoning bylaws creating a separate category called “short-term rental.”
