Short-term rentals, including lodges, cabins, and cottages, can now resume operations.
Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation, and Trade Vic Fedeli made the announcement on Twitter exactly two months after the province shut down non-essential short-term rentals as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hotels, motels, and student residences, however, could continue operations after the April 4 shutdown.
“Short term rentals including lodges, cabins, cottages, homes, condominiums and B&Bs will be allowed to resume operations in Ontario starting June 5 at 12:01 a.m.,” the minister tweeted on Thursday, June 4.
Ontario’s emergency order remains in effect until at least June 30.
