The Secondary Suite Initiative is currently under review by Council.

Current Secondary Suite Requirements

A secondary suite is defined as a self-contained dwelling unit with no more than two bedrooms located entirely within, but clearly accessible and subordinate to a single family dwelling.

In order for a secondary suite to be authorized by the District, a number of requirements must be met, including:

•  Owner-occupied dwelling
Zoning and Location
Minimum lot size
Restrictions on other uses of the property
Maximum size of secondary suite
Building Code compliance, including fire separations
Sanitary sewer connection
Access to the secondary suite
Permits and inspections
