Autumn has officially arrived, and with it comes fantastic foliage, shorter days and longer nights that signal the start of Canada’s fall season. Whether you’re a Canadian looking for an escape in your own backyard, or a world traveller wanting to take in maple trees, mountains and sightseeing in the Great White North, fall is a spectacular time to get cozy in Canada — and an even better time for Canadians to host on Airbnb.

The Most Wishlisted Categories in Canada
In May, Airbnb introduced a new way to search designed around Airbnb Categories, making it easy to discover millions of unique homes – and a perfect way to inspire your next fall Canadian getaway.
Since launching, travellers have been struck by Canadian wanderlust, eyeing outdoors stays that take advantage of Canada’s unique landscapes. Lakefront and Cabins are the top two most wishlisted Categories, followed by Countryside, Skiing and National parks rounding out the top five.³
And it’s not just Airbnb guests that are benefiting from the newly-introduced Categories. Airbnb Hosts across the country are earning additional income by adding their homes to a Category and inspiring travellers around the globe. Canadian Hosts in each of the top five Categories typically earned approximately $3,000 on the platform from the nearly 50,000 nights booked across all five categories in less than two months.⁴
