Short-Term Rental Public Consultation

Have your say on short-term rentals in the City of St. Catharines!

The City is reviewing short-term rental use, impacts and permissions with the goal of ensuring the City has a clear approach and a process in place that is fair and easy to follow, implement, and enforce. In addition to researching various approaches of other locations, we want to understand the community’s experience with short-term rentals, their thoughts, and what people feel the City should focus on for short-term rentals.

Public consultation is a key part of the process. We will host a number of pop-up information booths to connect with you in the community and request that you provide your input through our survey, or you can share general feedback by email to shorttermrental@stcatharines.ca. The City will also host additional consultation, such as an open house, at a future date to be determined.

As the process evolves, we will update those who participate in the engagement. Please click "Stay Informed" and subscribe for project updates.
