The provincial government has announced a new pilot project with AirBnb to raise awareness about the rights of homeowners and consumers when offering or booking online accommodations. As part of the project, users of AirBnb will be provided specific information about:
- How to follow tax laws, such as reporting rental income
- Consumer protection rights, such as refunds and cancellations
- Accessibility requirements
- General regulatory and safety requirements
AirBnb and the province will work together to create a website with specific information about regulatory and legal requirements that are specific to Ontario.
