With real estate prices booming to dizzying highs in many of Canada's most desirable markets, it should come as no surprise that luxury home owners are cashing in, using online hospitality marketplaces like Airbnb.

In fact, data compiled by Denver-based Airbnb analytics firm Airdna shows an elite group of property owners in in the Great White North have pulled in six figure incomes by catering to travellers over the last 12 months.

These findings dovetail with a new Statistics Canada analysis of the nation`s sharing economy, which found Canadians spent over $1.3 billion on peer-to-peer services between November 2015 and October 2016. Of that total, $367 million was spent on private accommodation services for properties in Canada.

Of course, Statistics Canada’s data doesn't account for foreign visitors, who are most likely responsible for a large chunk of overall spending on short-term lodging.

StatsCan also found the spoils of Canada’s sharing economy are flowing into the pockets of a relatively small number of enterprising participants when compared to the number of people who rent an Airbnb unit or hail an Uber.

The agency estimates 9.5 per cent of Canadians over 18, some 2.7 million people, participated in the sharing economy by paying for a peer-to-peer ride or spending on a private accommodation service the period studied. But the number of Canadians offering up space in their vehicles and homes during that time totalled just 72,000 and 69,000 respectively.

Perhaps Airdna’s analysis will encourage more people to get in on the action.
