The Township of Lake of Bays is asking for input on short term rentals (STR’s).

Beginning in August 2019, Township staff were directed by Council to investigate the short-term rental of residential properties with no on-site management. STRs are generally understood to refer to rental of a residence, or part of a residence, for short periods of time (a month or less).

The results from a community engagement process this public feedback showed significant support for the regulation of short term rentals. After a presentation to Council in August, Council directed staff to investigate options for short term rental regulation and to conduct another public consultation. The township says this will help determine the approach the Township should take to regulate short-term rentals.
