Secondary suites and housing
Municipalities across Canada are recognizing secondary suites as a viable source of rental housing. They can also provide extra revenue or mortgage support for families looking to buy a home.
The City of Edmonton encourages the development of secondary suites to increase safe affordable housing options as part of the objectives outlined in The Way We Grow and The Way We Live, as well as Cornerstones: Edmonton’s Plan for Affordable Housing, 2006-2011, which was endorsed by Council in 2005.
