Proposed bylaw amendments
Learn about proposed changes to existing bylaws, and have your say.
Short-term rental accommodations
We are considering bylaw changes to allow short-term rentals in some circumstances. These changes will add fairness by treating short-term rentals like similar businesses, while protecting the supply of long-term rental housing and managing negative impacts, such as parking.
Cannabis sales and consumption
We are considering several bylaw changes that will allow us to regulate some aspects of the sale and use of legal, non-medical cannabis in the District.
While responsibility for the regulation of cannabis falls primarily to the federal and provincial governments, we have authority to regulate businesses and land uses, which will help us further control where cannabis is stored, sold, and used, once it becomes legal across Canada in October, 2018.
