The Council of The Municipality of Bluewater has reviewed and discussed the subject of short-term rentals based on resident concerns and inquiries. Council has passed resolutions to adopt a "Strict Enforcement Policy". This means that the Municipal Law Enforcement Officers will operate a zero-tolerance mandate (i.e., no warnings) relative to repeat by-law infractions issues related to short-term rentals where evidence supports a charge against the landowner and/or the tenant.

To help, municipal staff have developed an educational brochure for short-term rental operators, renters, and residents explaining key by-laws and complaint submissions. This brochure is available in an accessible web version as well as a printable brochure.
