Applications open for short-term rentals in South Bruce Peninsula

A new Short-Term Rental Accommodation Licensing Program will come into effect in South Bruce Peninsula this January, but the municipality will begin accepting licensing applications next week.

Mayor Janice Jackson announced the new rules on her Facebook page in October, noting that problems with loud parties by short-term renters had become a nuisance, and hoped the new licensing system, including a one-time $300 registration fee and an annual license fee of $500, would at least quote-“make owners think twice about who they’re renting to”.

Licensing applications received by the municipality will not be reviewed until November 15th.

A release from South Bruce Peninsula also notes that sheds and bunkies are not permitted to be used as short-term rental accommodations.
