What is CanStays Rental Alliance?

CanStays Annual Conference will bring together Canada’s leading Vacation Rental industry operators and suppliers.

This conference is Canada’s exclusive all-Canadian conference for the vacation rental industry. This annual event will feature the best opportunity to connect, network, and learn from Canadian industry leaders and legislative and tourism representatives to help protect and support Canada’s vacation rental industry. We will tackle the complex issues unique to Canada, from economic, environmental, cultural, and political issues facing the vacation rental industry.

Canada’s vacation rental industry is under attack from wide-sweeping regulations that don’t consider the vital economic and social impact the vacation rental industry provides to Canadians. This conference will give Canadians a legislative voice to rewrite the script and protect the rights of property owners, operators, and guests.

Who Should Attend?

Property Managers, Owners, and Operators who operate in Canada should attend this conference to learn the ins and outs of Canadian tax law, marketing, labour, and safety issues. Industry partners conducting in Canada or hoping to expand into Canada should participate in this conference. The conference will feature main-stage events with keynote speakers and panel discussions on the most critical issues facing the Canadian vacation rental industry in the next five years.

We will feature a vendor hall, break-out room discussions, presentations, and networking opportunities for attendees and vendors.

A Podcast booth will be available for those wishing to record or live stream from the conference (must be pre-booked).
