Are Airbnbs Illegal in Toronto?

Are Airbnb’s actually Illegal in Toronto? If you’re not sure, don't worry you are not alone. Airbnb’s have become some of the most relied on housing options for traveling; including vacations and business trips. In this video we dive into the short term renting availability in toronto, and if it is legal or not.

In fact, it is against the law to operate a short term rental (Airbnb) in the city of Toronto. I not only explain why but I also touch on how they are currently operated in the city. It's not common knowledge that these properties are banned, in fact there wasn't even a plan to make them illegal. There were progressive plans to allow these short term rentals to thrive in the city. Later this year they threw out all propositions in favour of Airbnb’s, and made them illegal.
