Vacation rentals survey

News Article


The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) is conducting a survey to gather feedback on Temporary Use Permits (TUPs), which authorize the operation of vacation rentals throughout the region.

In response to an increasing number of questions regarding vacation rentals in the region, various Advisory Planning Commissions have requested a review of the regulation and enforcement of TUPs. The Regional District would like to assess concerns and interests in vacation rentals, also referred to as ‘short-term rentals,’ before considering possible changes to the current regulatory requirements. The vacation rental survey includes questions about short-term rentals and also asks respondents to consider various regulatory options.

The online vacation rental survey is posted on the RDOS Regional Connections interactive website. Paper copies can be mailed upon request and will be available for pick-up at the following locations:

  • RDOS Head Office, 101 Martin Street, Penticton
  • Osoyoos Town Hall, 8707 Main Street, Osoyoos
  • Riverside Community Centre, 148 Old Hedley Road, Princeton

The vacation rental survey opens Wednesday, January 11, 2023, and closes Wednesday, February 15, 2023.
