Garden Suites In Canada
A garden suite — sometimes called a granny flat — is a self-contained dwelling without a basement. It is installed in the rear or side yard of a lot with an existing, permanent, single-family house.
Usually, garden suites have a kitchen, living area, one or two bedrooms, bathroom and storage space (see Figure 1). Your municipality may have planning or zoning regulations governing garden suites. These regulations can set restrictions, such as distance from the permanent house, parking requirements, how long a garden suite can stay on a lot and the appearance of the garden suite.
Garden suites are usually intended for individuals or couples over the age of 65 who can live independently, or for people with disabilities. The people living in the permanent dwelling — the host family — can provide the care and support to those living in the garden suite. The host family is usually the children, grandchildren or other close relatives of the garden suite occupants. Once the people designated to live in the garden suite move out, it is possible to apply to the municipality for another family member meeting the criteria to move in.
