As-of-Right Zoning for Secondary Suites
Secondary Suites have been permitted across the City since 2000; however, existing zoning regulations only permit the creation of a secondary suite five years after the primary dwelling is constructed, and do not permit secondary suites in all townhouses.
City staff were directed by City Council, at its meeting on December 5-8, 2017, to report to Planning and Growth Management Committee in the second quarter of 2018 on a range of measures, including policy, regulatory and financial measures, that could provide incentives to facilitate the creation of additional secondary suites in Toronto. At its meeting on July 5, 2018, the Planning and Growth Management Committee directed staff to hold open houses to consult on draft zoning framework to support the creation of secondary suites; and report back with final recommendations and zoning by-law amendments in the second quarter of 2019 (PG31.12).
All meetings are from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and a short presentation will be held at 7 p.m.
