UCalgary, Calgary partner to research public perspectives on short-term rentals


The University of Calgary and City of Calgary have partnered to conduct research on public perspectives on short-term rentals. The initiative is part of a multi-year research collaboration focused on developing an evidence-based policy framework for short-term rentals that can be adapted to market conditions. UCalgary’s team will engage with interested groups, including short-term rental operators and community associations, tourism, business, and housing sector representatives. “Through this research partnership with The City, we are developing a data-driven and engagement-informed understanding of the market and the opportunities and pressures it creates,” said UCalgary Associate Professor Dr Lindsay Tedds. “As importantly, we are mobilizing this knowledge to set out implementable policy advice to inform how Calgary manages short-term rentals.”
