The Ghost Economy – The CITY Seminar at York University – Nov. 4, 1:30PM

As part of the City Institute’s “City Seminar Series”, a panel will critically address the impact of short-term rentals or ‘ghost hotels’ in Toronto. Panelists will discuss how platforms facilitating short-term rentals, such as AirBnB, affect housing affordability, decent work in the hospitality sector, and residential living in the city. The panel will also discuss policy implications for regulating ghost hotels in the growing gig economy.
