January 11, 2024

As of January 1, 2024, the Victoria County Marketing Levy By-law is now applicable to all accommodations in the County of Victoria.

The Marketing Levy which was amended in 2023, now applies to ALL fixed-roof accommodation providers within the Municipality, as required to be registered under the Nova Scotia Tourism Accommodation Registration Act. This now applies to all short-term rentals, which include AirBNB.

As of January 1, 2024, three percent (3%) of the Purchase Price of the Accommodation is being collected.

The Levy payment must be remitted to Victoria County on a monthly basis along with the Remittance Form. Payments can be mailed or made in-person at the Victoria County Municipal Building at 495 Chebucto Street, in Baddeck, Nova Scotia.

Your first payment in February 2024 will cover January 2024 payment and so forth. Remember to indicate the time frame your remittance covers.
