On Monday, August 20, City Council will be voting on whether to approve changes to the Zoning Bylaw to make building secondary suites (basement suites) easier in Edmonton. The proposed changes are extensive and would allow secondary suites to built:
  • on small lots
  • in semi-detached, duplex and row housing
In addition, the regulations overall are being simplified, giving secondary suites more flexibility in size and configuration. The changes should make it easier to build, and legalize suites, and ultimately lead to more housing choices for all Edmontonians. There are already suites in semi-detached homes all over the city, they're just not legal. I hope these changes are approved so owners can legalize these suites leading to safer living arrangements for tenants in Edmonton. Rental income can also help buyers qualify for a mortgage, and help pay down the mortgage. Whatever your thoughts on the proposed changes, now is your chance to let your city councillor know.

What people need is fewer housing choices. Everyone is leaving the province of Alberta. The last thing in the world Edmonton needs is more housing.
