Owners will require a business licence and will only be allowed to list primary residences on websites like Airbnb
Maple Ridge, BC Canada requires a city license to operate any bed and breakfast or airbnb. It cannot be considered short term rental and you must allow the city to do an inspection to make sure there is no kitchen in the area of rent. The meals have to be provided by the main kitchen not a secondary one in the rental.
Homeowners and primary residents who wish to list properties on websites like Airbnb will be subject to an annual licensing fee.
Homeowners caught listing units without a licence can be fined.
