Short-Term Rental Regulations

On October 30, 2017, Council adopted the Short-Term Rental Consequential Amendments Bylaw (Bylaw No. 2324, Zoning Bylaw No. 1750, Amendment Bylaw #188, 2017 and Bylaw No. 2325). These bylaw amendments provide the backbone of the new short-term rental regulations. 

Previously short-term rentals were not permitted in the City of Fernie. With these changes, residents are able to apply for a business license to operate a legal short-term rental in their principal dwelling.
