The City of Oshawa is undertaking an industry and public stakeholder consultation to discuss licensing standards for short-term rentals (S.T.R.) and S.T.R. companies (e.g. Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway, etc.) operating within the city.
Please note: The City’s Zoning By-law was updated in May 2018, to provide clarity by allowing short-term rentals in areas that permit dwelling units.
Short-term rentals include properties that are rented out as temporary accommodations for consecutive periods of twenty-eight (28) days or less. The total number of days rented cannot exceed a combined total of 180 days in a calendar year.
This survey is intended to gather feedback from current and potential short-term rental hosts/operators in Oshawa.
Feedback will be received until 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 28, and considered in the development of regulatory licensing standards that will be presented to Corporate Services Committee.
