In February 2021, a new Municipal Accommodation Tax (MAT) will be coming into effect. A 4% tax will be applied on the rental price of roofed accommodation(s) for stays of 30 days or less. Legally, a portion of the MAT must be spent on tourism marketing, development and management, and a portion must be spent on tourism infrastructure.

Through the Fall 2020, industry and public consultation will take place to determine how MAT revenues should be spent and by whom. Consultation will be open to both the general public and the tourism industry as a whole.
