Secondary suites

Secondary suites offer an innovative, cost-effective way to increase the amount of affordable housing options in Strathcona County. 

This housing option helps meet the lifestyle and social needs of lower income County residents, particularly for those looking for rental housing. 

“Secondary suite” means an accessory use consisting of one additional self- contained dwelling unit located within a single dwelling. 

Note: “Garden Suite” means an accessory use on the same lot as the principal dwelling, which is either a separate one (1) storey building having no garage component, or a suite above an accessory building or to the rear of an accessory building (at grade), or a suite within an accessory building.
