Short Term Rental Survey
The City of Nanaimo is currently reviewing its Zoning and Business License regulations as they relate to short term rentals and bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodation. This work is a direct recommendation of the Affordable Housing Strategy (AHS).
The intention of the project is to:
- Ensure short-term rental accommodations do not impact the long-term rental housing supply in a negative way.
- Ensure short-term rental accommodations are good neighbours.
- Ensure equity among short-term accommodation providers
The review will determine if bylaw changes are required to address short term rentals in Nanaimo and if required to make recommendations to Council for bylaw changes.
Short term rental refers to the short term (less than 30 days) rental of an entire residential dwelling, suite or room located on a residentially zoned property.
A bed and breakfast refers only to the rental of a room or room(s) within a single detached home occupied by the owner. The City currently permits bed and breakfasts in all zones but does not permit entire home rentals in any zones that do not allow for a hotel.

Participating in the survey is entirely voluntary. You are welcome to skip any question you are unable to or do not wish to answer. All responses will be summarized with others and no personal information will be collected or disclosed.
