Submission to the City of Toronto on Zoning for Secondary Suites

Whether or not our clients have a housing law issue, we very often have a housing problem: we can’t find any! At least, not housing that is safe, affordable, and anywhere close to the communities, families, jobs, and schools to which we are connected.

This summer, City of Toronto staff proposed changes that would remove some of the barriers to building more “secondary suites”, such as basement apartments, in places like Scarborough where our clients are often stuck renting in illegal and dangerous rooming houses. We call on the City to do this (and a whole lot more!) to increase the limited supply of these rental housing options. You can read our submission here.
