Be a Safety Leader & Partner with Us for Youth Safety Education Day – Monday September 10th, 2018

Every year, on average, THREE young workers die tragically on the job in Saskatchewan. These heartbreaks can be prevented with proper safety training and education.

Even if your organization doesn’t employ or come in contact with youth in your operations, your support of our youth by raising awareness for the cause would be greatly beneficial.

Help us raise awareness and take a safety leadership role in this years’ “Youth Safety Education Day” on Monday September 10. It is through efforts of individuals such as yourself that we can bring safety awareness and education to the youth of this province before they even step foot into the workforce.

For more information, please contact the Service & Hospitality Safety Association, Dara Miazyk Communications Coordinator (306) 522-5499 EMAIL

Canada’s Hotel Industry Releases Airbnb Best Practice Guidelines for Canadian Cities

The Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) released best practice guidelines for regulating short-term rentals. Governments at all levels are grappling with the implications of the growing short-term rental industry and platforms like Airbnb. The paper, “Developing a Modern Approach to Short-Term Rentals in a Digital Economy,” gives Canadian municipalities an analysis of regulatory developments worldwide and best practice approaches to developing a local framework.

What started as true home sharing has expanded into a growing trend: people using these platforms to become commercial operators. Over the last two years, the commercial side of Airbnb’s business – those renting multi-unit entire homes – grew by 108%. These entire home rentals generated 83% of Airbnb’s revenues.

“Today, the short-term rental industry operates with limited regulation,” said Alana Baker, HAC’s Director of Government Relations. “Online platforms are being used to operate commercial accommodation businesses, resulting in unintended consequences including lost taxes, less housing, community nuisances and even criminal activity. There is an acute need for federal, provincial, and municipal governments to put in place a modern regulatory framework that will address these consequences, promote fairness and protect communities.”
