District of West Vancouver Considers 2010 Rentals for Winter Games
The 2010 Olympic welcome mat is maybe coming to West Vancouver as the District Councilors debate whether or not the change bylaws that would allow residential unit rentals during the Winter Games. According to the staff reporter, Rebecca, for the North Shore Outlook, West Vancouver 2010 rentals currently restrict short-term rentals shorter than 29 days as specified by the district bylaws.

Right now, a staff report coming from the District of West Vancouver Council explained that the city is considering changing the bylaws that would allow for temporary West Van 2010 rental accommodation during the 2010 Games. With over three hundred and fifty thousand visitors coming to Greater Vancouver to experience this once in a lifetime event and with sixty per cent of these people coming from out of town, West Vancouver 2010 rentals and hotel accommodation are in very limited and short supply. As a venue city (Cypress is hosting many events), West Vancouver 2010 rentals currently consist of just one single motel and five bed and breakfast operations, which is clearly not enough to house the many thousands of spectators, media and tourists. With the current bylaws in place, short term West Vancouver 2010 rental accommodation is a no-go. However, the council realizes that there will be many problems leading up to the games if the short term West Vancouver rental inventory is not increased. If the bylaw is adopted on July 20th, single family homes may be rented out in whole or up to two bedrooms per household to increase the rental West Vancouver 2010 accommodation stock on the North Shore. The bylaw will restrict the West Van 2010 rental to two occupants per bedroom and in addition, the renters will not have access to the cooking facilities in the home. In addition, the West Vancouver home owners who opt to rent their single family West Van 2010 homes will have to provide off street parking too. There are 2 requirements for the West Vancouver 2010 Olympic rentals: 1) an inspection by the fire department (with a passing grade) and 2) a business license of $150 (one-time fee for operation of the short term West Vancouver 2010 rental). Enforcement is only complaint driven and once the business license and inspection are fulfilled, the District of West Vancouver will help promote the Olympic rental.

West Vancouver Tenants are Worried and Concerned about 2010 Olympic Evictions
According to the North Shore Outlook’s Rebecca Staff Reporter, there are growing concerns in the District of West Vancouver by tenants who fear evictions by landlords and homeowners during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. These ‘Olympic evictions’ are just some of the issues that tenants have brought to the District of West Vancouver, voicing their concerns about affordable housing, evictions during the Games and legal issues. With the 2010 Olympics fast approaching, many West Vancouver tenants have physically approached the district of West Vancouver regarding their concerns about Olympic evictions that may take place later this year or early next year before the Winter Games starts. They are afraid that landlords will kick them out to take advantage of the higher rental income that can be had during the West Vancouver 2010 rentals period. Just last week in July 2009, the West Vancouver council agreed and voted in favour of a new bylaw that would allow landlords and property homeowners to rent rooms and entire West Vancouver 2010 rental homes during the Winter Olympic Games. However, just like in the City of Vancouver’s bylaw that was passed, after August 1st, 2009, West Vancouver home owners will not be eligible for a 2010 rental license if a current tenant complains that they are being evicted to make room for Vancouver 2010 rentals.

Changes in West Vancouver short-term rental bylaws allows West Van homeowners to rent their homes for the Olympic Games as long as an inspection is done by city fire department and a business license is purchased

However, West Vancouver does have a ‘concerned tenants’ registry which protects tenants from evictions for Olympic rentals. This official registrar helps cross reference tenant complaints with home owners applying for the Vancouver 2010 rental license. However, in North Vancouver, the city has NOT yet passed or amended any bylaw that would allow for short term 2010 rental accommodation (suites or rooms or homes). According to the Impact of Community Coalition, all cities within the Lower Mainland have to take extra precaution in dealing with short term rentals and the tenant eviction issue. As with Expo ’86, it was noted that over one thousand tenants were evicted to make way for short term expo rentals. West Vancouver’s Olympic rental bylaws are further than North vancouver’s, but they do not have the mechanisms to be policed or managed to make sure that tenant evictions are not performed closer to the winter games. In addition, prices for Vancouver 2010 rental accommodation do not align between the property owners’ asking price of $700/night for 2 bedroom suites with vacationers and renters who propose around $500/night on average for the same suite. Tenants will always have rights and according to the Tenant Resource and Advisory Centre, if you are evicted for Olympic rentals, you can definitely file for a complaint/breach of the residential tenancy act.
