Become a FOBBA Member

FOBBA membership is made up of Ontario Bed & Breakfasts that are committed to maintaining consistently high standards in guest accommodation. Each of our members is "Quality Assured" for cleanliness, comfort, quality, safety & hospitality - so guests can always feel confident about their stay.  Raising the bar on Quality Assurance is what sets FOBBA properties a cut above.

Along with your membership, you'll receive:

  • Provincial representation when new rules are being made which will affect the Bed and Breakfast industry in Ontario.
  • A certificate to prominently display in your B&B as well as a door/window decal
  • FREE downloadable FOBBA icon for your website
  • Participation in Resorts of Ontario Marketing programs.
  • Your very own webpage on that you can edit, post your B&B pictures and keep contact information up-to-date.
  • FOBBA marketing materials (promotional items, rack cards, etc.)
  • Newsletters, emails and relevant information throughout the year.
  • Access to a library of information (Government, Marketing, Recipes, Regulatory, Webinars etc.) in our member's only "Knowledge Bank"
  • Inside information, offers and member rates on B&B services and supplies through our Vendor Marketplace and Resorts of Ontario Preferred Suppliers list.
  • Discounted Bed & Breakfast/Home Insurance through Halpenny Insurance Group of Companies
  • Access to FOBBA's panel of experts to answer your email queries
  • Discounted member rates and a vote at our yearly Conference & AGM - A great way to meet other innkeepers and stay informed of the latest trends!
  • FREE source of reliable Bed & Breakfasts to send guests to and receive guests from around the Province.

Last but not least...

  • The friendly smiles, faces and camaraderie that come from knowing you belong to a Professional Organization of like-minded individuals, who want nothing more than to welcome in a stranger and have them depart as a friend.  INCREDIBLE!

You're only a few short steps away from becoming a full member...

  1. Read the Code of Ethics page of this website which also contains the FOBBA definition of a bed and breakfast. Make sure that your business does comply.
  2. Your business must be registered with the Ministry of Consumer and Commercial Relations. This is a requirement of the province for any business that is not incorporated or is not your personal name. You can do this online at a cost of about $60 through Service Ontario.
  3. After submitting your application, you will be contacted by our membership director, and arrangements will be made to complete your Quality assessment to ensure compliance with FOBBA operating standards.
  4. After we receive your application, we'll email you a login and password, which will give you access to your personal FOBBA webpage. Here, you can start adding photos and descriptive text about your property. 
  5. Your membership does not begin until all fees are paid, your Quality assessment is complete and your webpage is made active.
  6. Please note that it is mandatory that all FOBBA B&B's have a clear cancellation policy in their description. This is to protect both you and your guests.

A Word About the Web

Your Bed and Breakfast will be listed under your FOBBA region, your city or town, as well as alphabetically. There is also an advanced search feature that lets visitors search for your name, or certain amenities they might be looking for, so it's a good idea to complete all the information that makes it easy for guests to find and book with you. You are responsible for your own content, rates, and especially, any changes to your email address, so always be sure to keep them up-to-date. On line tutorials and members of the Executive are available to help you.

Please send your forms, inquiries and requests for help to:
