This Election, Vote Fair Rules: Hotel Association Calling on Federal Parties to Commit to Modernizing Canada’s Outdated Tax Laws

Today, the Hotel Association of Canada (HAC), joined by the Ottawa Gatineau Hotel Association (OGHA) and the Association hôtellerie Québec (AHQ), is launching its election platform and website, calling on all federal parties and candidates to modernize Canada’s outdated tax laws and regulations for digital platforms like Airbnb.


Commercial short-term rental operators who use digital platforms like Airbnb continue to grow, while our laws remain outdated. We are seeking support from candidates across the country during this federal election to ensure these digital businesses contribute their fair share to the Canadian economy.


It is clear that the government has the support of Canadians. We hope to see leadership during this election. It is time for political parties and candidates to commit to fair rules and modernize Canada’s tax laws, for the benefit of our economy and all Canadians.
