    We had a good turn out and the entire meeting was about 11 hours. We wrapped up around 8pm. 

    Unfortunately, we could only convince 3 of the 8 councilors to support our position. To be honest, I was surprised we got 3 as the mayor has been putting a lot of pressure on council to support the staff recommendation. 

    We have a working group looking at next steps including last minute lobbying ahead of the Nov 27th council vote. An appeal is also being planned.

    Anyone interested should join the FB group "Ottawa Short Term Rental Association". If you can't find it, PM me via FB and I will invite you in.

    For all those who do STR today, this is a very serious issue that will absolutely affect your business. You need to take the time to read the recommendations and give your input to Victor. 

    I will also be present as speaker #20. 

    Bylaw is using their defined 3 tests for both LTR and STR. Namely: Quality, Availability and Affordability. 

    For STR, they have focused on Availability (STR impact to LTR supply) and Quality (impact to neighbours).

    The recommendations from staff are due to be presented to committee on November 15. If implemented, they will have a dramatic impact on the landscape of short term rentals in the city of Ottawa. I am booked on the agenda to speak at the Nov 15 meeting on behalf of OREIO members. I have a 5 minute speaking slot reserved. If there are points you would like made on the recommendations, please send an email to vp@oreio.org and we can discuss how best to respond.
