There are more than 300 short-term rentals — such as Airbnbs and Vrbos — in Vancouver. Due to zoning laws, almost all of them are illegal.

Short-term rentals — defined by the city as units rented by individuals for less than 30 days — are banned in Vancouver’s residential zones unless they are bed and breakfasts.
