Summary of the Issue of Secondary Suites (Text-only)
These “secondary” suites are dwellings that are either attached (In-law or Granny Suite) or detached from the main house (Garden Suite). They are smaller dwellings usually inhabited by an older relative. Presently, a zone amendment is required to allow a suite, with the condition that the suite be reconverted back to the main house or removed from the property once the relative no longer lives in it.
