City Wins at LPAT with Short-Term Rental Decision

The City received notice on Monday from the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) that the appeal of the City Council-approved zoning regulations for short-term rentals were dismissed.

The decision enables the City of Toronto to move forward with implementation of the regulations as approved by Toronto City Council more than a year ago, but were on hold due to the appeal.

The City will have more information in December about implementation, timelines, and how the licensing, registration, and four per cent Municipal Accommodation Tax (MAT) will work.
