City councillors are split on how to tackle the issue of short-term rentals in Mississauga.

Commonly referred to as Airbnb, the increasingly popular online person-to-person platform that allows users to rent homes or condos, at a cost often lower than hotels, is growing rapidly in Mississauga. The period between May 2015 and May 2016 saw a 227 per cent increase in number of visitors using Airbnb in the city.
