Making it easier to apply for and build a secondary suite

Post Date: Monday, July 20, 2015


Although secondary suites are not allowed in every community in Calgary*, many Calgarians are able to build a secondary suite in their home. To help citizens do this, The City of Calgary has created a helpful website to explain secondary suites and streamline the process.

This is a great example of how The City is cutting red tape to make it easier for citizens to build safe and legal suites within their homes. 

To learn more about the value of secondary suites in Calgary, please visit The City of Calgary's "Secondary Suites for People" website.


*Mayor Nenshi will continue to advocate for allowing safe and legal secondary suites to be built throughout Calgary. This is an important part of creating a more sustainable and affordable city by allowing more housing options for Calgarians.
