Residential Rental Licensing (RRL) Pilot Study
The City of Windsor is currently performing a two-year pilot study to:
Evaluate whether a residential rental licence can improve Windsor's existing rental housing stock and property standards;
Identify opportunities to improve the study's licensing framework as described in By-law 14-2023
Determine the feasibility of an ongoing citywide residential rental licensing program.
The pilot study began on February 13, 2023. Individuals who own properties with one to four residential units located in Ward 1 or Ward 2 are now required to secure a residential rental licence for each unit they rent or offer for rent.
Licence applications are due annually by May 31.
