Tourist Accommodation

In Whistler, Tourist Accommodation means the business of marketing or providing accommodation or lodging to paying guests, and includes hotel businesses, hostels, pensions, bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, recreational vehicle parks, and vacation rentals.

Only certain properties in Whistler are zoned to allow for Tourist Accommodation. 

If you are considering renting your property in Whistler on a temporary basis to tourists you need to make sure your property is zoned to allow paying guests. Otherwise, you will not be given a business licence. Any property owner without the proper business licence found marketing their home for paying guests will be ticketed and fined.
