When deciding whether to become an Airbnb host, it's important for you to understand the laws in your city. As a platform and marketplace we do not provide legal advice, but we want to provide some useful links that may help you better understand laws and regulations in Regina. This list is not exhaustive, but it should give you a good start in understanding your local laws. We’ll continue to update this information as more becomes available. If you have questions, contact Service Regina at 306-777-7000.
The City of Regina requires hosts to register with the city in order to engage in short-term rentals in the city. Hosts are responsible for applying for a business license online or in person at city hall.
There are two types of licenses: one for those hosting in their primary residence and another for those hosting in a secondary residence or investment property. Hosts must include their license in their listing description. In the event that a host does not register with the city, the city may require the platform to remove their listing. Learn more about the bylaw.
Other contracts and rules
As a host, you need to understand and abide by other contracts or rules that bind you, including leases, co-op rules, HOA rules, or other rules established by tenant organizations. You should be able to find out more by contacting your housing authority (such as a community council) or landlord. Your lease (or other contract) might also have specific details.
