The Town of Gananoque has changed by-law requirements for Short Term Rentals which are specifically geared towards Airbnb rentals.
Short Term Rentals and Airbnbs are now considered commercial properties with more stringent planning requirements. All property owners who do not live at the building full time will need to apply for a Class III development permit at a cost of $1,700, not including professional and legal fees.
This switch will ensure that short term rentals adhere to building regulations, fire safety requirements, parking and comparability with residential neighbourhoods.
If you need help navigating the planning process and getting your short term rental or Airbnb approved through municipal authorities, contact our office and our professional planning team can help you.
