Township of Tiny launches Short-Term Rental Licensing Program


Council has directed Township Municipal Law Enforcement Officers to operate on a zero tolerance mandate (ie. No Warnings) relative to by-law infraction issues related to short term rentals where evidence supports a charge against the landowner and the renter.

Property owners renting their property and adjacent neighbour(s) are encouraged to discuss any rental concerns they may have with each other and must be aware of all applicable Townships By-laws. It is advisable that each neighbour exchange their contact information to continue dialogue on any concerns that may arise in the future. Those affected by a Short Term Rental may wish to also contact the listing rental company and understand their Rental Standards and Feedback process.
