Airbnb has temporarily suspended over 40 listings across Ontario, as the short-term rental giant continues in its effort to weed out "party houses" during the pandemic.

Most of the listings are located within the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa, and Hamilton.

The full list, according to Global News, is:

  • Barrie
  • Belleville
  • Brampton
  • Caledon Village
  • Georgina
  • Hamilton
  • London
  • Markham
  • Mississauga
  • Norfolk County
  • Northumberland County
  • Ottawa
  • Peterborough
  • Prince Edward County
  • Quinte West
  • Richmond Hill
  • Toronto
  • West Nipissing

The site has recently made it their mission to ensure that parties as a whole are banned from Airbnb properties.

"We all need to do our part to reduce the number of large parties and events, and we support the efforts of local officials to crackdown on this reckless behaviour," said Nathan Rotman, Airbnb's Canada public policy manager in a statement.

The site has also moved forward with banning users under 25 from renting entire homes, meaning that young'uns can only rent from shared apartments.

That plan, which was piloted in Canada, has seen success in eliminating large social gatherings and will be attempted in European countries this year.
