What You Need to Know About Ottawa's New Airbnb and Long Term Rental Rules


On November 27th, Ottawa city council approved the creation of new short term rental (Airbnb) and long term rental regulations that will impact both landlords and homeowners. This is a must attend event for local housing providers!

This Meetup will provide participants with details about the new rules and offer tips that can be used to manage their businesses during the development of the new bylaws.

The cost is $20.00 per person which covers your breakfast and tip! Sorry, no refunds or Realtors.

Joining me next Saturday will be Christian Szpilfogel and Genevieve Walton.
