Short Term Rental Process

The City of Charlottetown’s Planning and Heritage Department would like to remind the public that the process for the development of Short-term Rental regulations is in the early stages. As with any draft bylaw, no decisions have been made as to what the final regulations, bylaw, or bylaw amendments will be.

Following a public meeting of Council on Monday, March 9 and a presentation by Planning staff, draft regulations and a bylaw are currently being created for review. The presentation from the meeting on Monday, March 9 is available below. 

The Planning Board met on Friday, March 13 and City staff made a presentation to the Planning Board, which is the official start of the Short-term Rental regulation process. During this meeting, the Planning Board made a recommendation to Council to meet on Monday, March 16 at 5 p.m. in Council Chambers. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 and recommended social distancing practices, the meeting has been canceled. The public will be notified when the issue is returned to the Council Meeting Agenda. The presentations that were made during the Planning Board meeting held on Friday, March 13 are available below. 

Once Council has moved the information to the public consultation phase, Council and Planning staff will be accepting comments, concerns, and questions in various forms. Prior to this phase, the Planning Department and Mayor’s Office are not able to officially collect comments or respond with clarifications so as not to interfere with the process. Once public consultation is announced, written submissions will also be accepted.

To stay up-to-date on meeting notifications, subscribe to the meeting calendar under the Mayor and Council section. Meeting agendas and packages are also available under this section of the City’s website.

The City of Charlottetown is committed to providing accessible information and is working diligently to ensure the public is informed of the process. All information to date is available on the City’s website, as listed above.
