Short-Term Rental Accommodations (STRA) refer to people renting their residence, or part of it, for short periods of time, often through online booking platforms, such as Airbnb, VRBO, Home Away and Booking.com. Short-Term Rental Accommodations are a popular, growing trend across the world.
Newmarket is currently looking into the regulation of short-term rentals. The Town is part of a larger short-term rental working group that involves other municipalities in York Region.
After extensive research and consultation on best practices with other municipalities, that currently regulate short-term rentals, the Town will put together options on how to best regulate short-term rentals. These proposed options for regulations will be presented at a Public Information Centre (PIC) hosted in Council Chambers (Municipal Offices - 395 Mulock Drive) on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m. with a presentation at 7 p.m. Residents will be invited to provide their feedback at the PIC.
