The City of Winnipeg (the City) is exploring regulations to mitigate negative impacts and concerns caused by short-term rentals. Community concerns include impacts on housing market and rental housing, noise, safety, and loss of sense of community.

Short-term rentals are temporary accommodations (less than 30 consecutive days) in a dwelling such as an apartment, house, or condominium, provided by a property owner or principal tenant in exchange for payment. Common short-term rental platforms include Airbnb, VRBO, and HomeAway. Municipalities have also recognized the value and benefits of short-term rentals, including contributions to the local economy, providing adaptable accommodation options, and an additional source of income.

The City wants to hear from Winnipeg residents and people in the short-term rentals and related industries to learn more about concerns and opportunities related to short-term rentals to determine the best way to approach regulations.
