A short-term rental or short-term accommodation is when all or part of a dwelling unit is used to provide over-night accommodations for a period that is equal to or less than 28 consecutive days in exchange for payment.
Beginning May 19, 2022 all property owners who offer a short term rental accommodation in Bracebridge are required to register their property and obtain a licence to operate legally in accordance with By-law No. 2022-032.
“I encourage everyone to participate in one of the open houses to help shape a short-term rental accommodation plan that best represents Bracebridge,” said Stephen Rettie, CAO of Town of Bracebridge. “The Town is committed to working with stakeholders and interested parties to achieve an approach that reflects the values and priorities of our town.”
