Airbnb businesses in Greater Sudbury are regulated under the Short-Term Accommodation By-law. This by-law requires all short-term accommodation providers, including Airbnb hosts, to obtain a license and adhere to certain regulations. The license application process involves completing an application form and submitting it to the city, along with a fee and proof of insurance. Hosts are also required to comply with various regulations, including providing guests with emergency contact information, displaying their license number on all advertisements, and maintaining liability insurance. Additionally, hosts are required to collect and remit the Municipal Accommodation Tax (MAT) of 4% on all short-term rental bookings. Non-compliance with the by-law can result in fines and penalties. As such, it is important for Airbnb hosts in Greater Sudbury to be aware of and comply with the relevant regulations.
