Let’s Talk about Short-Term Rentals
Do you run a short-term rental from your home? Are you interested in or concerned about short-term rentals in your neighbourhood? The City of Chilliwack is creating new short-term rental rules, and we want to hear from you!
Online platforms like Airbnb have led to a rise in short-term rentals across Canada and around the world. We are working on policies to make sure short-term rentals operate responsibly in the community, and to make sure the rules are clear.
When we updated our Zoning Bylaw in 2020, residential short-term rentals became prohibited, except for licensed Bed and Breakfasts. Now, we have four regulatory options to consider. We are recommending short-term rentals take place on the same property where the owner/tenant lives, either by renting out a spare room or another unit on the same property.
Thank you to everyone who gave us their feedback! The survey is now closed. For more information on the stakeholder engagement process, including a detailed summary of the results, please read the "Engagement Summary Report" here.
