Bed & Breakfast (homestay)
You must apply for approval to establish a bed and breakfast (homestay) in an owner-occupied dwelling unit. The regulations for bed and breakfasts are designed to:
- ensure compatibility with the character of established residential neighbourhoods
- increase the viability of neighbourhoods
- increase the capacity of the City to host major events by increasing public accommodation facilities
If you are successful
The zoning of your property will not change; the permit will simply allow you to operate the bed and breakfast from your dwelling.
You will need to complete a Business Licence Application Form, as a bed and breakfast is considered a home based business.
If you wish to place a sign on your property advertising your bed and breakfast, you will also need to complete and submit a sign permit.
