Vancouver asks for your input!
According to the City of Vancouver:
In recent years there has been rapid growth in online platforms like Airbnb that allow people to rent their rooms or suites out on a nightly basis, often to tourists. Recent analysis found more than 5,000 active short-term rental listings in Vancouver.
Council has asked staff to review the City’s short-term rental regulations in 2016. We're working to better understand the economic benefits of short-term rentals, as well as the potential impact of short-term tourist rentals on the supply and price of long term rental housing for Vancouver residents.
