The Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) ended 2018 with a strong stance by issuing a press conference and calling on the federal government to follow through on the Standing Committee on Finance’s Pre-Budget Consultations Report. The Committee recommends actions focused on tax fairness and tax avoidance, which would help address the existing advantages currently enjoyed by short-term rental players like Airbnb.
The time to put public pressure on is now and we need to continue the momentum as we approach the 2019 Federal Budget. HAC is asking you to take meaningful action for our industry; here are a few ways you can show your support:
Canada’s hotel sector deserves tax fairness. The federal government should follow through on the Standing Committee on Finance’s Pre-Budget Consultations Report. Budget 2019 should foster a fair, competitive playing field for all. #cdnpoli #FairRules
Write a letter:
Tell your Member of Parliament it’s time to level the playing field. Canada’s Hotel Sector deserves tax fairness.

In an effort to better serve Canadian hoteliers and the hospitality industry, individual hotels can now become direct, non-voting members of the Hotel Association of Canada. The work and research they do takes a lot of resources, and isn’t possible without industry support. With organizations like Airbnb putting millions of dollars into their own lobbying, having a strong national association is more important than ever. Click here to learn more about HAC membership.
