Short-term rental operators in Toronto who rent out properties for periods of less than 28 days will have to formally register with the City of Toronto starting September 10, 2020, to keep operating in the city.  The new online registration system is part of a broader effort to better regulate short-term rentals across the city, and more details will be announced by the city prior to the system becoming active.

People Currently Renting Their Home

Those who are currently renting their home on a short-term basis, or planning to do so, must be registered by December 31, 2020. After this date, all new operators will be able to register on an ongoing basis and must register prior to short-term renting their homes.


Zoning Bylaws

In Toronto, short-term rentals are regulated by the City's zoning bylaws and the Licensing and Registration of Short-Term Rentals bylaw: 
  The City continues to respond to short-term rental issues on a complaint basis. Residents can contact 311 to report issues related to short-term rentals, such as noise, waste, and concerns if others are renting homes that are not their principal residence.
