The overall objective of the proposed By-laws is to replace the existing Short-Term Accommodation Licensing regime and introduce a business licensing framework which will include Short Term Accommodations. Through the Administrative Monetary Penalties By-law, the Town will benefit from an additional enforcement mechanism to promote compliance with the Licensing By-law, and perhaps in the future, other designated By-laws.
