Short Term Accommodations

In Collingwood, outside of hotels and motels (C1 in the Collingwood Zoning By-Law page 126) , short term accommodation (less than 30 days) is only allowed in bed and breakfast establishments.  Bed and breakfasts are a form of home occupation in which the proprietors are also residents of the building in which the short term accommodation is offered. 

Short Term Accommodation is defined under the Town’s Zoning By-law No. 2010-40 as:

“the use of a dwelling unit, or any part thereof, that is operating or offering a place of temporary residence, lodging or occupancy by way of concession, permit, lease, licence, rental agreement or similar commercial arrangement for any period of 30 consecutive calendar days or less, throughout all or any part of a calendar year."


Subsection 4.22.2, of Zoning By-law No. 2010-40, as amended states: Except for a bed and breakfast, no dwelling unit shall be used as short- term accommodation
