PosterKawartha Lakes – Have you picked up your free copy of the municipality’s Short Term Rentals posters? As the Civic Holiday long weekend approaches, Kawartha Lakes is reminding residents, visitors and tourists to be aware of important by-laws and information when renting or using Short Term Rentals.

Informational posters about Short Term Rentals are available for free at your local Municipal Service Centre. These posters include a wide range of information, from who to call to make a complaint about a Short Term Rental, to what noise and parking regulations are in place throughout the municipality.

Kawartha Lakes residents who rent out their property are encouraged to display the informational posters in their home or cottage.

Along with these posters, Kawartha Lakes has developed a new Short Term Rentals page on the municipal website. Visit for information on fire regulations, open air burning, fireworks, property standards and more.
