Sustainable Hosting Canada

Get started on your journey towards sustainability.

Sharing your home with people is an age-old tradition that has evolved and moved into the modern age by booking accommodation through the click of a button. What hasn’t changed is our desire to make people feel welcome when they visit, and to share with guests the very best that our communities and homes have to offer. 

Those same guests are increasingly looking for more sustainable options when choosing accommodation, as they make thoughtful and intentional decisions around where, when, and how to travel to lower their impact where possible, as research from National Geographic suggests. Hosts in Canada can respond to this increasing demand by taking steps to become more sustainable, and communicating their efforts to guests.

To support hosts in that journey, a Sustainable Hosting Pledge and Playbook have been developed for Canadian hosts. This free resource will guide hosts through practical steps to become more sustainable, both at their property and with their guest experience, across the following six topics:

Engaging your guests

Local Community & Culture

Nature & Wildlife
