A WIN FOR HOTELS in Airbnb Regulations

The City of Vancouver recently passed legislation to regulate short-term rentals, allowing rentals only in one’s principal residence. This is great news for the hotel industry as this will eliminate the commercial side of Airbnb’s business (and other similar platforms) in Vancouver, which competes directly with hotels. 

This legislation is critical because it sets a precedent for other Canadian cities. The City noted that enforcement is critical and it is their intention to ensure platforms are held accountable. The Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association will continue to work with our members to advocate for similar legislation in communities around Saskatchewan.

“We would like to commend the City of Vancouver in their recent move to restrict short term rentals to operator’s primary residences. These regulations are an important measure towards curbing the commercial activities of company’s like Airbnb and sets a direction that creates a level playing for all operations that work in this space.

We have recommended to our provincial and municipal governments that they recognize the precedent set by the City of Vancouver and implement similar regulations and legislation”. Jim Bence, SHHA President & CEO

SHOTZ ON ELEVEN owner finds home in hospitality industry

By Jonathan Hamelin

When you examine Herman Zentner’s background, you would assume it was an easy decision for him to enter the hotel and hospitality industry.

His grandfather purchased a hotel in Chamberlain in 1960 and ran the business until he passed away in 1992 after a battle with cancer. Zentner’s grandmother and father then headed up operations. As he was growing up, however Zentner didn’t originally plan to follow in his family’s footsteps.

 “I never really had anything to do with the hotel growing up". Zentner said. “I was a welder by trade and never imagined I’d be involved withthe hotel.”

In 2006, Zentner’s family went through a difficult year as Zentner’s father and then grandmother passed away after battles with cancer. The business was willed to Zentner and his brother and suddenly the future of the hotel was up in the air.

“The big question was ‘what do we do with this?’ “Zentner said. “We both had great fulltime jobs; we were home every night and had decent pay and benefits. We had to determine whether we should sell it or open it.”
