Prospective STA Owners and Operators

Prince Edward County has become one of Ontario’s most popular tourist destinations. Many visitors enjoy staying in short-term accommodations as well as bed and breakfast establishments. Changing consumer demands also mean that non-traditional short-term accommodations are gaining in popularity.

The municipality is committed to implementing reasonable regulations that limit the growth of short-term accommodations in saturated areas and encourage new short-term accommodations in appropriate areas and in appropriate densities. Furthermore, the municipality wants to ensure the safe and respectful operation of short-term accommodations in the interest of all residents and visitors.
