Until recently, secondary suites were only allowed in single detached homes. Following changes to the Zoning Bylaw made in August 2018, secondary suites are now allowed in single detached, semi-detached, duplex and row housing.
To see if your property is zoned for a secondary suite, check your property’s zoning designation. Visit maps.edmonton.ca to see if secondary suites are listed in your zone. Secondary suites are typically allowed in zones where single detached, semi-detached, duplex or row houses are allowed. You can also consult a Development Officer at the Edmonton Service Centre.
