Town moves to regulate Airbnb and short-term rental accommodations in Oakville

Short-term rental accommodation operator must now have principle residence in same dwelling

The town has made changes to its zoning bylaws in an effort to regulate and govern Airbnb and short-term rental accommodations in Oakville. 

The town’s planning and development council voted to make the changes during a March 19 meeting. 

The term “short-term accommodation” typically describes rentals that occur over a short period (e.g. less than 30 days). 

Town staff said the zoning bylaw regulates the types of properties that homeowners can rent as a short-term accommodation, and effective Nov. 1, a new licensing bylaw will require rental companies and rental hosts to be licensed with the town in order to operate.
