Short Term Rentals in Grimsby

Summary

Online platforms have led to a rise in Short Term Rentals (STR) across Canada and around the world. As a result of an approved motion (see below), Town of Grimsby Staff are facilitating public discussion with the intent of collecting feedback and investigating the possibilities of implementing a short term rental licensing program in the Town of Grimsby. With feedback from stakeholders and the community, Staff will work to create recommendations for Council to consider and determine the potential of a licensing program and STR By-law in the near future.

A STR licensing program protects the health and safety of people residing in residential properties, minimizes potential impacts to surrounding neighbourhoods, and protects the residential character of areas. In addition, a STR licensing program can attract tourism and investments while also increasing revenue to local businesses. It also provides a wider range of accommodation options for visitors.

We want to hear from you! We invite the public to share any initial questions and feedback using the forum below.

An Open House was held on June 20, 2024 and a livestream of the presentation is available on Youtube. A survey will launch in August.

Background

Presently, Bed and Breakfasts are permitted for certain properties in the Town of Grimsby Zoning By-law, but do not require inspections or licenses from the Town of Grimsby. STRs are not permitted in the Town of Grimsby. Municipal Law Enforcement Officers act on a complaint-basis only, and respond to reported issues such as parking infractions, excessive noise, and safety concerns.

Project Scope

On December 4, 2023, Town Council approved the following motion that defines the project scope:

"Whereas implementing a short term rental tax or licensing system within our municipality can aim to enhance both the regulatory framework for short-term rentals and the promotion of tourism.

Whereas such a system could ensure compliance with local regulations and contribute to the municipality's revenue stream.

Whereas revenue generated from this initiative can be allocated towards establishing a pilot project fund designated for legal representation for local tenants. This fund would be dedicated to providing legal representation and support services to local tenants facing housing-related legal challenges. The provision of legal aid for tenants will contribute to a more equitable and fair housing environment within our community.

Therefore be it resolved that staff conduct a comprehensive study on the potential implementation of a short term rental tax or licensing system and the establishment of the pilot project fund. The study should encompass an analysis of similar initiatives in other municipalities, potential revenue projections, administrative requirements, and the feasibility of allocating a portion of the revenue for tenant legal representation."

Your feedback is important! On the right hand side of the page you will find the project lifecycle and FAQ section that contain additional information. You can enter your email in the subscribe box to receive occasional email updates about project milestones.

Feedback

Why is the Town of Grimsby considering a short term rental licensing program?

The number of short term rentals are on the rise, and Town Council asked staff to investigate the potential of a short term rental licensing program. Your input will help inform the development of a draft short term rental By-law in Grimsby. Do you have questions or concerns about a STR licensing program? Are you in favour or against a STR licensing program and By-law and why? Questions, comments, and feedback are encouraged!

The input gathered during this process will help Staff prepare recommendations regarding a STR licensing program for Council's consideration. This is the first of multiple opportunities for public review and input.

Before asking a question or providing feedback, please review the FAQ section for background information. Please review the project timeline for next steps.

  • Share I think short term rentals are much needed. As someone else stated it can supplement your income with the high taxes and mortgage rates and cost of living. Especially if you are single and only have one income coming into your house! On the flip side it is needed for many reasons. I used to do this through airbnb and the need was amazing. One gentleman came from Calgary to work here and stayed with me until he bought a house in Town and moved his family here. Many many people stayed with me while waiting for their new builds to be completed or the closing day for their house wasn’t the same as the house they sold. Some are just touring our beautiful Niagara Peninsula. Some are here for weddings etc. some have stayed with me for fundraisers in our area like the Iron Girl for Mcnally house hospice. Some could need a place to stay while visiting loved ones in hospice or hospital when they come from out of town. So so much need. Having said that, I would rather see owner occupied homes do this. When condos and other places are purchased only for the reason of short term rentals it can cause many issues, parties, unwanted guests, problems that could effect the neighbours who live there. Also there is already a shortage of housing for families so buying up only to rent out isn’t great. As far as the annual fee or liscencing, as long as it was reasonable and a way to stay on top of things would be fine. But remember people are already paying insurance and fees to airbnb. In the past I have also hosted med students doing placements in our wonderful hospital or with our family docs. Just my 2 cents on Facebook Share I think short term rentals are much needed.

    The Town of Grimsby is reviewing all possibilities, including how this may impact affordable housing and long term rentals.

  • Share I don't see an issue with it. If there are already 120 what's the problem? I hear no complaints. With the cost of housing these days, why not make a little extra off your home? After all, it is our home. Hosting people from around the world who would love nothing but to spend time exploring the area under the roof of someone who lives here? Looks like a great fit to me. We stayed in an airbnb in Scotland. As tourists spent over $2k there. You don't see that sort of revenue beneficial to the town? It makes sense to me to allow it but for goodness sake don't make it impossible with burdensome fees. Make the money in return from tourists.

Would there be a cap on the number of rooms allowed within a dwelling to be rented out? Will this by-law contemplate parking in the event multiple rooms are permitted to be rented at a time similar to a rooming house?

    Joe.S asked 2 months ago

    The renting out of rooms would fall under a bed and breakfast, but require the serving of food to the guests. If those conditions were not met, it would not be defined as a bed and breakfast and not covered under this potential By-law.  

    As seen in other municipalities, a parking management plan could be mandatory under the application to ensure that there is viable parking on the property for all guests.

    The licensing program would require a bed and breakfast or short term rental to licence. This would not require long term rental to be licensed.

  • Share I totally agree with STR. I think it’s a good idea because there are not good hotels in Grimsby. The hotels around the area are old. When I have sent visitors to those hotels, they have complained. B&B? Is there any nice b&b in the area? There was one on Main St E and it was sold. I guess it was too old. It would be nice fir people to come to Grimsby and enjoy a nice Airb&b facing the lake. on Facebook Share I totally agree with STR.

  • Share It appears that the town is making a very clear distinction between B & Bs and SRTs when they are essentially the same but offer different amenities. Given their similarities, I have to question why they would need to be regulated differently since I’m not aware of SRTs being anymore problematic than B&Bs. Also, there seems to be a lot of attention being paid to the short term rental “problem” while the Town has lost irreplaceable rent control housing and done nothing about that very real housing issue. I’m am quite disappointed in this state of affairs. on Facebook Share It appears that the town is making a very clear distinction between B & Bs and SRTs when they are essentially the same but offer different amenities.

Given their similarities, I have to question why they would need to be regulated differently since I’m not aware of SRTs being anymore problematic than B&Bs. Also, there seems to be a lot of attention being paid to the short term rental “problem” while the Town has lost irreplaceable rent control housing and done nothing about that very real housing issue. I’m am quite disappointed in this state of affairs.
