TICO has seen an increase in businesses engaging in offering short term accommodation rental properties to consumers that are owned by third parties (ex. cottages, condo apartments and homes).    These individuals or businesses may be engaging in activities that fall under the Ontario Travel Industry Act, 2002 and require registration.

The following guidelines are designed to assist in determining when a business that arranges short term accommodation rentals are selling “travel services” (accommodation “sleeping accommodation for the use of a traveler, tourist or sightseer”) as defined under the Travel Industry Act, 2002 (the Act) and when TICO registration is required.
