City of Winnipeg - Stakeholder Consultation for Short Term Rentals
Regulating Short-Term Rentals
The City of Winnipeg (the City) is exploring regulations to mitigate negative impacts and concerns caused by short-term rentals. Community concerns include impacts on housing market and rental housing, noise, and loss of sense of community.
Short-term rentals are temporary accommodations (less than 30 consecutive days) in a dwelling such as an apartment, house, or condominium, provided by a property owner or principal tenant in exchange for payment. Common short-term rental platforms include Airbnb, VRBO, and HomeAway. These accommodations contribute to the local Winnipeg economy, provide adaptable accommodation options, and provide additional source of income for Winnipeggers.
The City wants to hear from Winnipeg residents and people in the short-term rentals and related industries to learn more about concerns and opportunities related to short-term rentals to determine the best way to approach regulations.
