Apply for a Residential Short-Term Accommodation Licence Ensure your Rental is Visible for Grey Cup
With Grey Cup 2022 just over a month away, our community is getting ready to host thousands of visitors. Are you a homeowner who has decided to become a short-term host for the event?
The City of Regina requires a Residential Short-Term Accommodation Licence in order to rent out part of your main or secondary residence. Applications take two to three days to process and must be renewed annually. Make sure to plan ahead and apply for your licence today so that you can start preparing for guests.
The Residential Short-Term Accommodation Licence ensures you are operating your business safely and offers renters comfort in knowing that the required safety inspections have been completed.
A Residential Short-Term Accommodation Licence is required if you are renting your home, or rooms within your home, for periods of less than 30 days. Separate licences are required for each residence that you are renting as a short-term accommodation. Failure to operate without a licence could disrupt your short-term rental business, which may include removal of your advertising.
The licence must be displayed in the accommodation where it can be seen by renters. In addition, the licence number must appear on all advertising and marketing, including online platform ads like AirBnB or VRBO.
Residential short-term accommodation rentals help boost our local economy and provide visitors with more variety in their accommodation choices.
