Who is Eligible:
Secondary suites are a type of rental housing located on a property that normally accommodates a single-family house. It is a dwelling unit secondary to an
existing primary dwelling unit and contains its own entrance, kitchen, bathroom and living area. Secondary suites can increase the number of affordable rental units available in the housing market and create more opportunities for home ownership.
The Secondary Suite program provides financial help to eligible homeowners for the construction of a secondary suite. The financial assistance is provided in the form of a forgivable loan for 50 per cent of the total construction and renovation costs, to a maximum of $35,000.
Homeowners enter into a 10-year agreement, over which time the loan is forgiven on a pro-rata basis.
